Interview Snippet: Toronto Lake Swimmers

As the name suggests, the Toronto Lake Swimmers swim in the lake at Toronto, NSW, enjoying the fresh water and tranquility the only a lake can provide.


Date: 24 July 2020
Interview number: 026
Interviewees: Toronto Lake Swimmers (Sally & Bevan)
Lake Swimming Baths, Toronto, New South Wales


We met up with Sally & Bevan at the lake swimming baths on the lake foreshore in Toronto, NSW and Jules swam with the crew, starting in the baths and then along to the yacht Club and back. The water was a touch under 15 degrees but the lake was in all her glory, with no wind, glassy water and a slight fog for effect.

After the swim, we talked about the beauty of the lake – a hidden gem in NSW, the joys of lake swimming and how this group of unlikely friends have become connected over their passion for open water swimming.
