Join swimmers from all over Australia for the Gold Coast’s premier ocean swim. The Cooly Classic is 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. Regardless of which distance you choose, you’re guaranteed to experience the crystal clear waters of the Southern Gold Coast in autumn. Distances: 1.0km, 2.0km, 3.0km, 5.0km
