Coffs Harbour ocean swim

Sun, 7 Apr 2019

The Coffs Harbour ocean swim at Jetty Beach is a fun, charity fundraising event for swimmers of all abilities.

With a 2km swim across the harbour, a 600m swim around the jetty, and a 150m and 300m swim for younger athletes, the event caters for the novice to the more competitive.

The Coffs ocean swims are held in a beautiful protected harbour and the scenery speaks for itself.

After your swim replenish your energy and check out some of the delicious cafes in the area or go and explore the beautiful sites Coffs has to offer.

Swim courses

The Coffs Harbour ocean swim caters for swimmers of all abilities and ages.

The main event on the day is the 2km swim. Competitors will start on the beach, swim around the jetty and one lap inside the protected harbour, finishing back at the starting point. The event is open to strong swimmers 12 years and above.

There is also a 600m event, one lap around the jetty, for those less experienced swimmers. The minimum age for this event is 10 years.

And for the juniors, there are two fun swims on offer; a 150m event for eight to 10 year olds and a 300m swim for those aged 11 to 14. These swims start and finish on the northern side of the jetty, around two buoys.

150m junior ocean swim

A nice little swim around the buoys for 8-10 years olds.

300m junior ocean swim

The slightly older kids, 11-14 years, can take on a 300m sheltered swim around the buoys. Watch out mums and dads… they’re coming for you!

2km ocean swim

The main event: A 2km return journey swim around the jetty, into the harbour for a lap, and then backtracking to the start/finish. For those aged 12+.

While you’re there

Coffs Harbour is home to many delicious cafes and restaurants. After your race, replenish your energy at The Urban Espresso Lounge, a favourite amongst the locals. The avocado and feta smash on walnut bread is a winner!

Coffs is also a beautiful place to explore. Check out the iconic Big Banana, the stunning views at the Forest Sky Pier or the natural beauty of Bongil Bongil National Park.

Travel and parking

There’s loads of parking along the beachfront road (Jordan Esplanade) and you’re likely to find a park in the back streets away from the harbour. Don’t worry, it’s not Sydney, you’ll find something.
