The Island Charity Swim at Mudjimba on the Sunshine Coast is a true test of endurance for long-distance ocean swimmers.
At 10km, it’s one of the longer open water swims on offer in Australia. The course will take you from Mudjimba Beach, around Mudjimba Island (affectionately known as Old Woman Island by locals) to Mooloolaba Beach – quite the journey and plenty of beautiful sights to see!
This event is a major fundraiser for the children at the Nambour and Currimundi Special schools, located nearby and swimmers can choose to participate either solo or in teams of up to six swimmers.
Along with your entry fee, each swimmer/team is required to meet a minimum fundraising goal to meet registration requirements and gain entry; $200 for an individual, $300 for a team of two, $450 for teams of three or four and $600 for teams of five or six.
While you’re there, make the most of the beautiful Sunshine Coast beaches and chilled coast life by making a weekend of it.
Note: This is an open ocean event with a course that takes swimmers approximately two kilometres offshore. Therefore, all swimmers are required to have a support crew of a paddler and a safety vessel. Please view the official event website for more information, including their extensive FAQ’s
