2022 Macquarie Bondi to Bronte Swim

Wednesday 15 March 2022:
Important Event Announcement

The Event Committee have made the tough decision to reschedule the Macquarie Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim & Banana Boat Junior Ocean Swim to Sunday 4 December 2022

Whilst this is hugely disappointing for all involved, as a lifesaving organisation the safety and health of both participants and our army of volunteers is paramount.  Sadly, there is too much uncertainty around current water quality, with significant debris in the water, a strong smell of pollution, poor water clarity and more rain forecast this week. 

We wanted to act early and decisively to minimise inconvenience for those who have already signed up. In that respect we have set a new date and we will honour all current entries at the 4 December 2022 swim. 

We also acknowledge our fantastic sponsors Macquarie Bank, Engine Swim, Banana Boat and The Kids’ Cancer Project who are continuing their support on the new date.

To everyone who has entered, we are super keen to see you on the first Sunday of summer! We have automatically rolled over your entry to Sunday 4 December 2022

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Fundraising for The Kids' Cancer Project

the kids cancer project

Make an even bigger splash by making your swim count for childhood cancer research! Since 2013, we have proudly partnered with The Kids’ Cancer Project and in that time, Bondi to Bronte swimmers have raised over $320,000 to help children with cancer.

There are great swim-centives for everyone who gets involved, and you’ll have a wave of support every step of the way. The funds you raise will boost our investment into medical research to find kinder, more effective treatments for our Aussie kids diagnosed with cancer.
