Swim for the Reef

02 December, 2015

Swim for the Reef is an annual national fundraising event where people come together to swim and raise funds to support the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. 

Whether you prefer to swim at the main event at Musgrave Park Pool in Brisbane or somewhere closer to home, you can personalise the challenge depending on your own swimming ability.

You might choose to take part in a relay challenge, swim a certain number of laps at your local pool, or swim a certain distance in the ocean. It’s all about having fun and personally contributing to the Reef’s protection.

If you’re going away, consider incorporating your swimming challenge into your holiday by swimming at the pool or beach. Your laps will still count to the overall tally as we aim to swim the equivalent distance of the Great Barrier Reef (-a massive 2,300km!)
