The Mona Vale Ocean Swim is a two swim event on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
The first of the swims is the 1km Janice Mason Family Fun Swim at Mona Vale, a relaxed and enjoyable swim for the whole family.
Following that, the longer of the two swims, the Don Jenkins Memorial Swim, takes swimmers on a 2.26km journey from Warriewood Beach to the Mona Vale Basin.
The Warriewood to Mona Vale swim was first held during the 1977-78 season with 20 swimmers, and it is now named after the founder of the swim, Mona Vale life member Don ‘Doc’ Jenkins. It is recognised as one of the first organised swims in Australia.
Once you finish your ocean swim, spend the day in Mona Vale exploring the area, attractions, and cafes, with something to suit everyone’s taste.
