A free bus is available for swimmers from Surfers Paradise to Coolangatta Beach before the event, departing Surfers Paradise Surf Club at 5:00am and arrive at Coolangatta Beach at approx 5:45am.

This service is designed for Solo swimmers and the FIRST SWIMMER in teams.  All other team members must be onboard their Support Boats, assembled in the Offshore Waiting Zone before the event start.

Please email us if you would like to book a seat on this bus –



All Solo swimmers, plus one team member from all teams and their Boat Skipper must attend a Safety Briefing, on EITHER Thursday 26th or Friday 27th.



The swim start is directly in front of Coolangatta Surf Club on Marine Parade.

The Chalk and Lanham Street carpark nearby is free of charge:





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.
