Every year in August people gather on the Sunshine Coast to help the Nambour & Currimundi Special Schools. They swim from Mudjimba Beach, out around Old Woman Island and all the way to Mooloolaba. That’s 11km of swimming on the wrong side of the shark nets!

All the funds raised goes directly to the Nambour and Currimundi  Special Schools

Individual swimmers are required to provide their own non-motorised support craft i.e. paddleboard or ski and a seaworthy motorised support vessel.

Teams will require a non-motorised craft and a vessel licensed to carry all swimmers and support crew.  Only one swimmer will be allowed in the water at any one time.

The swim commences at Mudjimba from 7am. Individual swimmers, first Team swimmers and all paddlers must register at Mudjimba SLSC at 6am. These times are confirmed at the pre-event briefing a couple of weeks prior to the Swim. Boats and the remainder of Team swimmers must start from the Mooloolaba Coast Guard.
