BAG TRANSPORT

Solo swimmers and Team Swimmer #1 will have access to a Bag Transport service, from the Start at Coolangatta Beach to our Surfers Paradise Finish Area.

You do not need to book, but we do ask that you only have one bag per person.  This bag needs to be secured with a zip, not an open plastic bag etc.

Team Swimmers – you are able to leave a bag at Check-in on Friday night that we can have waiting at the Finish for you.  You may like to have a change of clothes, towel, EFTPOS card etc as soon as you arrive, rather than wait for your Skipper to arrive with your belongings.

All bags will be available for you when you arrive in our Recovery Area on Surfers Paradise Beach.
