Coogee to Bondi Ocean Swim

Coogee to Bondi Ocean Swim, Bondi Beach 2012

Jump in and experience the joy of swimming in the open ocean from Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach Australia!  Challenge yourself and do the swim in your personal best time or cruise along taking in all the gorgeous bays on the way. With celebrations of your achievement at the finish, it’s a perfect day to get out there and be a part of something special.

First run in 2002, the Coogee-Bondi swim follows a glorious course, one that rightly can regard itself as “epic”, without risk of hyperbole. It leaves Coogee, threads between Wedding Cake Island and the headland, skirts Clovelly, around Shark Point, traipses along the cliff towards Bronte – albeit without touching the beach – then heads out around Mackenzies Point and into Bondi. It’s a stunning, spectacular course, just perfect for those left-side breathers who missed all the scenery on their way from Bondi to Bronte or Tama to Cloey.
