In its fourth year, The Australian Unity Great Australia Day Swim is hosted by the Brighton Rotary.

The event will be hosted by ex AFL player and Bayside resident Trent Croad.

Michael Klim and his Olympic swim team will also be attending to host the MILK celebrity relay. The relay will be an exciting event for spectators with Olympic and National Title swimmers along with local celebrities participating.

On the day there will be different swimming events including a 5km swim, 1400m swim, 650m swim, Junior Dash and MILK celebrity relay.

Over 2,000 entrants receive a complimentary gear bag, event T-shirt, sports cap, swim cap, Powerade drink, fruit, and ice cream – raising funds for disadvantaged children in the state.

All proceeds will go to charities largely for children from disadvantaged homes and those in crisis, such as Les Twentyman’s 20th Man. The major charity is a Bayside charity, BayCISS which support the education expenses of children whose families cannot afford those basic expenses.

The Day is themed as a family festival to celebrate our national holiday on Australia day. For the large crowd of spectators there will be a BBQ, drinks, ice cream and fruit to purchase on the day as well as a band to entertain the crowd.

Register for the Australian Unity Great Australia Day Swim:
