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.
Our event in January 2021 was impacted by COVID-19 and repairs to the Middle Brighton Pier, but we look foreward to resuming our usual event on Australia Day in 2022.
GADS 2022 will be a CovidSafe Event. Event staff and the Brighton Lifesavers will all be double-vaccinated and we require all entrants over Age 12 to provide proof of double- vaccination.
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
