Bilgola ‘Billy’ Swim

13 March 2022

The Bilgola Ocean Swim, affectionately known as the ‘Billy’, is yet another beautiful boutique swim to take place on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Bilgola, near the northern extremity of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, is a pristine beach with crystal clear water and clean sand. The surf club setting among the trees is one of the best in all of Sydney, you’ll quickly forget you’re still in Sydney.

But when there’s a swell, Bilgola has its sinister side, there’s plenty of shifting banks, rips, peaks, and shoulders.

And that’s why the Bilgola Ocean Swim can be both sinner and saint to an ocean swimmer.

The event has two different swims starting an hour apart, 500m and 1.5km and the more daring of swimmers can certainly try to complete both.

While you’re in Bilgola, make a day of it and explore the northern tip of the beaches.
