ONSHORE Podcast: Ep #014 – Minnamurra River Swimmers

There are many groups that swim in the Minnamurra River and we met up with a few of them for a swim and a chat about life as a river swimmer.


Date: 11 July 2020
Interview number: 014
Interviewee: Minnamurra River Swimmers
Minnamurra River Swimmers, Minnamurra, New South Wales


We met up with Angela Hay, Angela Brady and Pete Parkinson on the banks of the Minnamurra River on a beautiful blue sky day. And what a day it was, because the water was crystal clear on the high tide and the swim before our chat was divine.

The two Angela’s stuck around after the swim for a chat about what it’s like being a river swimmer, how the river differs from other open water swimming environments, and how their jobs intersect with their swimming passion.
