Aussie ocean swim at the Aussies
Sun, 15 Apr 2018
The Aussie ocean swim
The Australian Surf Life Saving Championships, or ‘The Aussies’ is surf life saving’s premier national surf sports event, pitting amateurs against professionals to crown the greatest lifesavers in the land.
The Aussie Ocean Swim now gives members and non-members alike a chance to be a part of this iconic festival.
The Aussies is just the tip of the surf sports iceberg – maybe a start in the Aussie Ocean Swim will be the inspiration you need to join the iconic surf life saving movement as a volunteer where you can embrace an ocean lifestyle for life!
This event shifts around wherever The Aussies is held each year.
The 2km swim course is a traditional rectangle course around a set of buoys. Being a surf life saving event, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of water safety from the boys and girls in red and yellow!
While you’re there
This event is all about the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships and apart from all the competition to participate in and watch, there are stalls and activities surrounding the event that you can immerse yourself in.
Set on the Sunset Coast Scarborough is just twenty minutes drive from the heart of the city. Scarborough offers a long, wide sparkling beach for sports, sunbathing and beachcombing and clear waters for swimming and surfing. Just back from the beach lies a wealth of restaurants, cafes, shops and accommodation styles to suit every taste and budget.
Travel and parking
In 2018 the Aussies will be held at Scarborough Beach, WA, and with the Aussies on there is organised event and public transport. Beach parking is wild, with 1000’s of clubbies fighting for space.
