The Noosa Summer Swim is a bucket list event for any keen ocean swimmer with a festival atmosphere that only Noosa Main Beach can deliver.

In 2020, the weekend festival will again offer a range of distances for every ability, from junior events to the 5.0km Noosa Grand Prix where seasoned swimmers can push their limits alongside current Australian representative swimmers.

Join thousands of Queenslanders and special guests for a huge weekend of sun, surf & swims on Noosa Main Beach.

Saturday 01 Feb 2020

10.00am Noosa 3.0 (Long Course)
If you’re looking for a new challenge or a longer distance, make the 3.0km course your next training goal.
All swimmers are able to choose their own wave start group, so find a training partner or friend and take up the challenge together.

10.45am Noosa 2.0 (Long Course)
The Noosa 2.0km is the most popular event on the program.
The course takes you out and back from Noosa Main Beach towards the Noosa National Park.  For those taking on their first long course event, there is an option to start with friends and other weekend warriors in the Mates Wave.

11.35am Noosa 1.0 (Short Course)
The calm, sheltered waters of Noosa are excellent for all abilities, so this short course is an ideal stepping stone for longer distances, or to conquer your first open water event.

9.45am Junior Giants (9.45am start 300m & 11.30am start 1.0km)
The Junior Giants events are a great opportunity for kids aged 8 – 16 years to compete with other swimmers their own age.
We have two distances to choose from:
    300m Junior Dash (8 – 16 yrs)
    1000m Junior Long Course (10 – 16 yrs)
We also encourage family and friends to share the experience and swim the course alongside the kids in the 300m Dash.


6.30pm Outdoor Cinema, Noosa Woods
What a way to finish your Saturday – kick back and enjoy a movie under the stars.
Starry Night Movies will host two sessions, so you’ll have some cartoons for the kids then a movie to follow, both are free for the whole family.
    Cartoons: 6:30pm
    Main Movie: 7:00pm | The Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman
This is an alcohol free event.

9.30am 5.0km Noosa Grand Prix
This is the big one, a 5.0km marathon distance swim.
The 5.0km Noosa Grand Prix is contested by some of Australia’s most talented pool and open water swimmers, as well as some international guests.
The multi-lap course around the sheltered waters of Noosa Main Beach is the perfect opportunity to push your limits beyond the typical open water distances.
In 2020 the field will be limited to just 200 swimmers – get in quick when entries open!

10.15am 1.5km Social Swim
This is one ‘hot lap’ of the Grand Prix course and is a chance to swim a different course format from Saturday’s events.
It’s relaxed, social and only as competitive as you want it to be!
There are no prizes or presentations for the Social Swim, but full results will be displayed online, live throughout the event.
Hoping to swim with fins or another swimming aid?  This is the event for you – you’ll start in the last wave start group.
