Swim with turtles, (reef) sharks and great big rays

Great Barrier Reef Swim

The Great Barrier Reef Swim will be held over the weekend, Saturday, November 4, through Wednesday, November 8, 2017.

The Great Barrier Reef Swim offers two courses over c. 3km and 1km around the reef off beautiful Heron Island, which sits right on the Great Barrier Reef. That makes it very different from other Queensland swims. You will not believe the clarity of the water, the abundance of the sea life, the cathartic development of your life over the four days of this event.

Not only that, Coach Graeme Brewer -- yes, that's right, the Olympian Graeme Brewer -- will be on hand to run coaching clinics to help you become a better swimmer. This is a unique event in an absolutely unique location. But we must declare an interest: acts as consultant to the organisers, the operators of Heron Island Resort, to help them run the best, safest swim that we can.

Your swim entries, Coach Brewer's clinics, all your food, are all part of the package. It's a terrific opportunity to mix with like-minded punters free from the cares of the daily news cycle whilst you're out on the reef, 72km off Gladstone.

Heron Island is a turtle sanctuary and the site of a coral reef research and marine sciences research station.
