Presented by The Rotary Club of Brighton in association with The Brighton Lifesaving Club

Welcome to the 11’th Great Australia Day Swim at Middle Brighton on Wednesday, January 26’th.

Our event in January 2021 was impacted by COVID-19 and repairs to the Middle Brighton Pier. It’s great we are able to resume GADS in 2022.

GADS 2022 will be a CovidSafe Event. GADS event staff and the Brighton Lifesavers will all be double-vaccinated and we require all entrants Age 12 and over to provide proof of double- vaccination on check-in. All registrations will be online.

We are disappointed to have cancelled the Junior Dash on Australia Day, to ensure a CovidSafe environment for both the juniors and our volunteers.

We welcome Kieser as our Principal Event Sponsor. Kieser operates a network of integrated physiotherapy, rehabilitation and strength training centres in Melbourne and regional Victoria

And Olympian Mack Horton OAM is supporting us this year as GADS Patron
