Welcome to the annual Island Charity Swim, held on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

The Island Charity Swim is a test of endurance for the participants and a major fundraiser for the amazing and inspirational children at the Nambour and Currimundi Special schools.

It is a unique challenge, not only for a very worthy cause but its completion guarantees your inclusion in swimming folklore, an exclusive club reserved for those who meet the sponsorship requirements and complete the course.

The swim is 11km from Mudjimba Beach around Mudjimba Island (Old Woman Island) to Mooloolaba Beach. 

Please note this is an open ocean event with a course that that takes swimmers approximately two kilometres off shore. 

Elite swimmers in flat favourable conditions have finished the course in two hours, however it can take up to four hours to complete. You can find more answers to your frequently asked questions by clicking here.
