Noosa Summer Swim, Presented by DMC Fins

February 17-18, 2024 | Noosa Heads, Queensland



The Noosa Summer Swim Festival is now one of Australia’s most popular open water swims.  Every year, over 2500 swimmers, with 5000 supporters in tow, descend on Noosa for a huge weekend of sun, surf and epic swims.

It’s a bucket list event for any keen ocean swimmer with a festival atmosphere that only Noosa Main Beach can deliver.

On Saturday, we start our weekend with a new wellness event including yoga, breakfast and guest speakers – ‘Rise & Nourish’.  Then later, our pool and open water clinics are an excellent opportunity to get expert coaching, tips & tricks from elite coaches.

Then on Sunday, ocean swims ranging from the 300m Junior Giants to the big one, the Noosa 5.0.  As always, there will be a huge range of abilities on the start line, from first-timers to seasoned swimmers and current Australian representatives.

Entries for 2024 are now open!

Noosa 5.0

This is the big one, a 5.0km marathon distance swim.

The multi-lap course around the sheltered waters of Noosa Main Beach is the perfect opportunity to push your limits beyond the typical open water distances.

WUNYA NGULUM – Welcome Everyone to Kabi Kabi Country

The Noosa Summer Swim acknowledges the ongoing connection to land, sea and community of the traditional custodians of this region, the Kabi Kabi people.

We acknowledge the Ancestors and Elders of the Kabi Kabi who were and continue to be the storytellers of this land, this sea and its people. They help us to know our country and people of the past and our present more clearly. In 2023, we are reminded of the journey that began with the Aboriginal people in this land, but that now incorporates the larger family Australia people.

The name “Noosa” was based on an understanding of the Kabi Kabi word meaning “shadow” or “shade” and we welcome you in your swim along the shady coastline of Noosa Main Beach within the Noosa National Park – Queensland’s most visited park.

The Noosa community has a long and proud history of protecting the coastline nurturing the region’s environment that is rich in natural beauty, biodiversity and cultural heritage – which is why it was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2007 and was made home to the world’s 10th World Surfing Reserve in 2020.

We invite you to join us in protecting our shores and marine life in the warm coastal waters of Noosa, Kabi Kabi Country at our 11th Annual Noosa Summer Swim.
