Malabar Magic Ocean Swim

The Malabar Magic raises vital funds for Rainbow Club Australia, a registered non-profit charity that helps children with disabilities learn to swim and be safe in the water.

The Magic is a featured event on the OceanSwims calendar and the Fine Ocean Swimmers Series, and offers a two swim program: 1km which starts at 9.00am and 2.4km which starts at 10.00am.

Malabar is a sheltered bay in Sydney’s east, with the start and finish on Malabar Beach. The course is indicated by marker buoys, and the swim is suitable for beginners who have adequately trained for this event.

This annual event is named after the great Australian Olympian Murray Rose. The swim’s name reflects the esteem which Rainbow Club Australia has for its former patron and one of the inaugural founders of this Ocean Swim.
