ONSHORE Podcast: Ep #015 Werri Point Swimmers

The Werri Point Swimmers are a community-minded group in Gerringong who enjoy an aquatic playground like no other.


Date: 12 July 2020
Interview number: 015
Interviewees: Werri Point Swimmers
Werri Beach, Gerringong, New South Wales


We met up with a huge group of Werri Point Swimmers on a gorgeous Sunday morning in Gerringong. Jules got to swim, so off they went off the rocks and along the beach under a shiny golden sunrise.

With coffees in hand, we sat around a table at the surf club to talk about the virtues of ocean swimming, the wonders the group swims have done for creating a sense of community and many of the break-away adventures some of the group get up to along the south coast.
