Dive in and Swim For The Reef!

It's time to make a splash for the Great Barrier Reef!

The 2019 Swim For The Reef is set to be the biggest yet, with swimmers far and wide limbering up and getting ready for the wettest, wildest fundraiser of the year.

Whether you're counting laps, doing a team relay, or just having a poolside party - there are so many ways to join in and raise money for a great cause.

In 2019 the events will take place between 14 January and 10 February, and the sky is the limit in how you can get involved.

The Swim

The Swim For The Reef started in 2016 with a simple idea – give Aussies a fun, fresh way to help protect the Great Barrier Reef.

Our goal? Collectively swim the length of the Great Barrier Reef – a whopping 2300km – one Swim For The Reef at a time!

Each year we tally up the total distance covered by Swim For The Reef participants and add it to the total.

Our Progress

Since the first Swim For The Reef in 2016 we have swum a massive 1,011km – almost half the distance of the Reef.

With your help, 2019 could be the year we hit our target!
