Interview Snippet: Fabulous Five

The Fabulous Five are a group of sometimes five, sometimes more, sometimes less, ocean swimmers who swim around and under the jetty at Coffs Harbour.


Date: 30 July 2020
Interview number: 027
Interviewees: Fabulous Five 
Jetty Beach, Coffs Harbour, New South Wales


We met up with four of the Fabulous Five, Robyn, Libby, Celia and John at Jetty Beach and Andre swam with two through the jetty and across the harbour and back. We struck an awesome sunrise and were greeted by a playful dolphin as we ducked under the jetty.

Later we interviewed three of the group, Robyn, Libby and John, to learn about ocean swimming in Coffs Harbour, the group dynamics and how this relatively new group goes about their regular swims.
