        The Balmoral Swim for Cancer, as it is officially known, is one of Sydney’s open water swimming gems.

        Not one to puff its chest out, the Balmoral Swim has been quietly giving swimmers a delightful swim at one of, if not the, most beautiful harbour beaches in Sydney since 1990. If it wasn’t for the great job they do of raising money for many cancer-related charities, locals would probably rather you didn’t get to know about this pristine flat water location!

        But, be it as it is, you now know about the swim and we implore you to get along and support this wholly volunteer and charity-run event.

        This year the event consists of:

        • 1km Around the Bay Ocean Swim – numbers capped (more info)
        • Junior 200m – open to children 12 years and under, the course is split between girls and boys (more info)
        • Balmoral Team Challenge – 4 swimmers each swim 200m (more info)
        • Schools Challenge Relay – 3 divisions, Senior, Intermediate and Junior. Four swimmers each swim 200m (more info)

        Besides its beautiful beaches, Balmoral is home to delicious restaurants and cafes.

        Replenish your energy with a delectable meal at the Boathouse Balmoral. Using only the best local produce, the Boathouse prides itself on great coffee. Or enjoy a beer or wine overlooking the stunning Sydney harbour foreshore.

        If you want more exercise after the gruelling race, the Spit Bridge to Manly Scenic Walkway is a must. Catch breathtaking views and scenery as you walk a series of short tracks.

        Parking at Balmoral is tough and expensive. Unless you’re getting there early, or willing to walk a considerable distance from a free street-side park, public transport is the way to go.

        To get to Balmoral you can catch a 257 bus from Chatswood or a 238 bus from Taronga zoo.
