Overview

It’s official, the Gold Coast is now home to Australia’s largest swimming festival! Gold Coast Swim Week is a week-long celebration of swimming that sees two existing major events join forces, plus leading coaches and special guests hosting clinics and training sessions at Gold Coast beaches and pools. On Sunday April 21, the Cooly Classic - a rare opportunity to swim a course with some of Australia’s most revered surf breaks as your backdrop – Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta and Kirra. There are four distances, from 1km to 5km, but it’s always the 2.0km Cooly Classic from Snapper Rocks to Kirra Beach which attracts the masses. Your Start line, Snapper Rocks, is one of the world’s most famous surf breaks. Then, your course is a straight line to Kirra Beach, passing Rainbow Bay, Greenmount and Coolangatta Beaches as you swim. On the following weekend, Sunday April 28 , Swim the Gold Coast, a marathon distance for individuals and teams that starts at Burleigh Heads and finishes at Surfers Paradise. Throughout the week, there’ll be a range of small group sessions and clinics with guest coaches. This is a chance to receive specialist coaching and also swim with local squads at some of the Gold Coast’s favourite open water training locations.
