Sydney Swim Experience


March 31 - April 5    2025

The ultimate ocean pool and harbour experience in iconic Sydney.

A 5 day combination of walking, swimming and exploring new pools every day including the famous Bondi Icebergs and North Sydney pool beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The aim is to complete 2-3 swims each day, you swim as far as you want - the goal is to embrace the heritage and story behind each unique pool.

We have devised a unique swim program for each location and you can complete as much as you wish, whether it’s a dip, a pootle with fins, or a 3k epic - the choice is yours.

twin share $2500 AUD
single room $3500 AUD


The final itinerary may be subject to change based on weather conditions, and optimum water conditions and replacement pools will be used if necessary due to safety reasons or water quality.

The final holiday may be subject to change based on hotel variability in pricing. The sooner you book the cheaper it is. The price you pay will be that displayed above on the day you book, and confirmed by email at the time of booking.

Please note if you book later the price may increase (current as at June 2024).

With most evenings to yourself you might choose a night out in Sydney, or enjoy an early night with room service.


No swim is the same, we visit some of Sydney’s most iconic and picturesque ocean and harbour pools.

Who is this holiday for 

This trip is for those seeking a swim adventure with people who want to do the same. At each pool we will provide you with the history of the pool and a suggested session to swim there inspired by past swimmers. You can therefore swim as far or little as you wish in each location.

You do not require open water experience to come on this trip but do need to have enough fitness to walk 6km on uneven terrain interspersed with swimming, have enough confidence to swim in deep water unaided and be willing to share a bathroom and bedroom if you choose a twin share.
