The Mount Martha Annual Diamond Swim (MMAD Swim) is one of the safest open-water swims on the calendar with our 100 water safety personnel supporting swimmers every year.

Held at Mt Martha Beach in Mt Martha, Victoria, the event offers three swim distances including a 400m, 1.2km and 5km in an around-the-buoys course.

There is also a 200m Nipper swim for the kids, so why not make it a family fun day of ocean swimming.

The MMAD Swim is a community-focused event that believes that fitness should be a way of life, not a list of goals to achieve which is why the event is for everyone no matter their fitness ability.
