Coogee Island Challenge

5 December 2021

The Coogee Island Challenge (spring edition) is the first ‘cut of the cake’ for swimmers looking to take on this epic island journey swim, with its autumn equivalent swim being held in April

This swim is the perfect opportunity to circumnavigate Wedding Cake Island, a little rock reef sitting offshore from Coogee Beach in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, and start the ocean swimming season with a bang.   

This year the event offers two ocean swim distances, a 1km course in the relative safety of the bay, and the 2.4km main event, both for swimmers aged 13 years and over.

The 800m ‘Junior Dash’ for the youngsters aged between 10-12 years old has been postponed for this event.
