The Danger Ocean Swim Series is one of the largest open-water swims in Australia offering a distance for all ocean swimming abilities.

Held inside Point Danger (a.k.a. Cosy Corner) on Torquay Front Beach the event offers four distances; 500m (Danger 500), 1km (Danger 1000), 2.5km (More Dangerous) and 5km (Even More Dangerous). 

The event has been the major fundraising event for the Jan Juc Surf Lifesaving Club since 1999 growing from only a few participants to one of the largest events on the ocean swims calendar. 

After enjoying a morning at one of Australia’s favourite open-water swims, don’t forget to explore the beautiful town of Torquay.

This event is the third event in the Great Victorian Swim Series.

Danger 500 (500m Swim)
The Danger 500 is the perfect event for younger swimmers or those who are conquering their first ocean swims. The swim course is a triangular course starting and finishing at Torquay Front Beach.

Danger 1000 (1km Swim)

Even More Dangerous 5km
The Even More Dangerous 5km is the perfect swim for those wanting to commit to conquering a distance ocean swim. Swimmers will start at Torquay Front Beach before swimming to Fisherman’s Beach and turning around to start their swim back to the finish at Torquay Front Beach.
