Humdinger Swim

The Humdinger Swim is very simple - how many 1km laps can you swim in 6 hours? Take on the challenge as a solo swimmer, or as part of a relay team of 2, 3 or 4 people.


The swim will start at 3pm and the number of completed laps at the chime of 9pm will be recorded. Live updates of progress throughout the swim will be on a big screen at lakeside, and of course, there'll be more than just a swim going on!

For Humdinger Day you'll find a real party atmosphere with music playing, great hot & cold food available, party games for spectators and relay swimmers and some fun competitions.

Every swimmer will receive the legendary Humdinger Swim medal of course, completed with an iTAB, and there'll be prizes too.

The swims will be wetsuit optional, with water temperatures typically in the region of 20 degrees by mid July each year.

Your Swim Instructions will be HERE from July 2nd.
