Big Swim: Palm To Whale Beach
30 January 2022
The Big Swim from Palm Beach to Whale Beach is one of the premier events on the ocean swim calendar, with a proud history and a satisfying and challenging course.
The point-to-point ocean swim started in 1974 with just shy of 40 competitors; but today, it is pushing 2000 competitors, attracting ocean swimmers from all over the country.
Located an hour’s drive from Sydney’s CBD, starting on the northernmost beach on the peninsula, this ocean swim offers two different swim distances; the ‘Little Big Swim’ which is a 1km ocean swim and the main event, the ‘Big Swim’ a 2.5km ocean swimming epic.
Some say you graduate as an ocean swimmer once you’ve completed the Big Swim.
