Australian ocean swim events for the summer holidays

The summer holidays are here and we’ve scanned the world wide web to find holiday ocean swims throughout Australia.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re laying low at home, or you’ve pitched the tent at the beach with the family, there’s likely to be a swim near you (unless you live in Queensland… they’re not big on ocean swimming).

Throw on some sunscreen, pull out the festive cozzies, dive in and give it a go!
