Course Information

The 2.0km Cooly Classic course spans four of Queensland’s most well known beaches – Snapper Rocks, Rainbow Bay, Coolangatta and Kirra.

From the world famous Snapper Rocks surf break you’ll swim West past Greenmount and Coolangatta beaches and onto your final turn directly in front of Kirra Beach.

Please note, for 2022 we have had to make some changes to the 3.0km & 5.0km course format, to ensure these courses do not overlap with Surf Life Saving Australia events, now being held at North Kirra Beach.

The 1.0km Cooly 1000 starts on Coolangatta Beach and finishes at Kirra. This option is the perfect introduction for less experienced ocean swimmers.
