The Bluescope WIN Community Partners Shellharbour Ocean Swim has perhaps the nicest and most picturesque set of ocean swims in NSW.
The two main point-to-point swims start at the Shellharbour Boat Harbour and take swimmers out into the ocean and north towards the stunning Shellharbour main beach. There’s also a junior swim that takes place at main beach so the whole family can get involved.
Fine and mild autumn conditions prevail at this time of the year, water temperatures are still favourable for swimmers and wetsuits are not generally required.
Shellharbour is a beautiful area and is famous for its beaches. Explore Killalea State Park and go surfing at a national surfing reserve.
