This is an excellent event for new swimmers wanting experience in the ocean and for younger swimmers and less confident swimmers.
Toowoon Bay is a beautiful beach, which sits inside a bay sheltered by reef on both sides of its entrance, as you can see from the image above.
It's also a Sat'dee swim, which means it clashes probably with nothing else, except, perhaps, for kids' sport. An excellent opportunity to get in two swims on the one weekend, with Coogee around Wedding Cake Island the next day.
2km, 1km and 400m special swim for 8-12 year-olds as well as grown-ups.
