Swim courses

The Beach2Beach is a 2.5km open water event commencing at Blackmans Bay.

Athletes swim along a stunning coastline and over kelp forests to Kingston Beach, where the race concludes.

The event is perfect for ocean swimmers of all abilities and is considered one of the most beautiful open water swims in Tasmania.

As it is one of the last ocean swims for the summer season, the water temperature has had a chance to warm up for competitors.

While you’re there

There is so much to see and do in Hobart, so take the weekend to explore the beautiful city.

The Salamanca Market in Hobart is a must-see and is open every Saturday. With more than 300 stalls, the market attracts visitors for food and music – fresh fruit, organic vegetables, local buskers and more.

A cruise to MONA also needs to be on the cards. The Museum of Old and New Art is located within the Moorilla winery and features some of the world’s infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art.

Enjoy a beautiful, fresh Japanese meal at The Glass House on Brooke Street Pier or a tasty steak at Rockwall Bar and Grill in preparation for the big race.
