The Macquarie Bank Big Swim and
McGrath Pittwater Little Big Swim
Held on the last Sunday of January each year with a distance of 2.5 - 2.8 km, it is known as The Big Swim because it is BIG. Conditions vary from dead calm to testing south-easterly or uncomfortable nor'easter’s, which can arrive early in summer with swells from all directions making for challenging swimming when you breathe to the left. It is a huge achievement to complete one swim, and some big swimmers have completed over 30 swims.
Next year’s event will take place on Sunday 28th January 2024, and kicks off at 8:30am with the McGrath Pittwater Little Big Swim. The Macquarie Bank Big Swim commences at 10am.
This 1km McGrath Pittwater Little Big Swim is around kiddies corner at Palm Beach. This is a perfect introduction to open ocean swimming with enormous water safety and a fabulous location for a short course swim.
This event is part of the Pittwater Swim Series whereby competing in just 3 of the 5 northern beaches swims you can win a Swim the Whitsundays tour donated by Oceanswims.
