Busselton Jetty Swim
09/02/2019 - 10/02/2019
The Busselton Jetty Swim is a premier event on the WA sporting calendar and features a 3.6km ocean swim around the iconic Busselton Jetty. Entrants are invited to swim solo or in teams of two or four, and the event has grown from 82 participants in the inaugural swim in 1996 to 2,560 swimmers in 2018 (including Kids Swim). Event organisers experienced unprecedented entry sales records in 2018, selling out in just seven days.
The event is open to everyone including novice, professional and swimmers with disabilities. The fastest swimmers complete the swim in approximately 40 minutes whilst the last swimmers take approximately three hours to complete the course.
The 2019 event will take place over two days on February 9th and 10th with plenty of entertainment, activities and fun for the whole family. The 3.6km swim, which is the main attraction, takes place on the morning of Sunday, February 10, 2019 followed by an awards presentation and celebration with local performers and a main act.
The atmosphere throughout the entire weekend is electric and swimmers come from all over WA, interstate and overseas to participate.
