The Aussies is coming to Perth and the 2km open water race is open to everyone!
The Aussies Ocean Swim at The Australian Surf Life Saving Championships - 'Aussies' - is a 2km ocean swim race that is open to both surf lifesaving members and the public.
This swim embodies the essence of fun and participation and is one not to be missed.
For those swimmers participating who are surf lifesaving members, this is a championship event and medals and points will be up for grabs for your club.
This year, receive an official event t-shirt, a pair of FINZ goggles and a swim cap with your entry!
Note: This event shifts around wherever The Aussies is held each year.
Held on Scarborough Beach with the backdrop of The Aussies, you'll feel like a superstar as you take on the course laid out in front of you.
Starting on the beach, you'll swim out and around a rectangle course in a clockwise direction: 200m out, 750m to the left along the beach, 50m out away from the beach, then a right turn for a second 750m leg, before turning right again and heading 250m straight back to the beach.
Come witness the remainder of the Aussies 2023 event. The Aussies is an annual event where members from Australia’s 314 Surf Clubs come together to compete in more than 480 beach and ocean events. It is the largest event of its kind, only comparing the likes of the Commonwealth Games.
Visit the festival zone with stalls, food vendors, sponsor activations and merchandise.
The Aussies Ocean Swim is located on the famous Scarborough beach and is a short ferry trip to Rottnest Island.
There is ample parking with multiple car parks up and down the coast.
Public transport is very easy in the area.
