The Great Bayside Swim (previously called The Great Australia Day Swim) is held every year on Australia Day at the Middle Brighton Pier in Brighton, Victoria, and is much more than just an ocean swim.

With five swim distances including 200m, 300m, 650m, 1.4km and 2.5km on offer there is a distance for everyone from the beginner open water swimmer to the experienced.

Starting at Middle Brighton Pier, swimmers will swim around the Yacht club marina and breakwater depending on their chosen distance.

Make a day out of the event and enjoy the live entertainment and food and market stalls once you finish your swim.

Spectators have prime viewing placement on the pier and breakwater allowing them to watch every inch of the action.
