Bondi to Bronte Virtual Swim Overview



With Ocean Swims and other mass gatherings around the world postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Macquarie Bondi to Bronte Virtual Swim provides a way for the swimming community to stay connected.

To be part of this historical event swim 500m, 1km or 2.2kms anywhere in Australia, anytime between Saturday 5 and Sunday 13 December 2020.Think beyond the break and consider where you might swim – your imagination is the only limitation. Don’t have easy access to the ocean? What about a river or a lake, even a swimming pool? In fact we’d love to hear exactly where you plan to swim!


Participate anywhere in Australia between Saturday 5 December and Sunday 13 December 2020.
(the event spans 2 weekends to allow for participants to swim in the best possible conditions)


Entries Closed!we've hit capacity and had to close entries. 

We’ve been overwhelmed with entries for the 2020 Macquarie Bondi to Bronte Virtual swim and have hit the magic 1000 entries. We are completely out of our limited edition Engine silicone swim caps and have now closed entries. You can still purchase an event T-Shirt from the Merchandise store.


A huge thank you to our event sponsors and partners that made the 2020 Virtual Bondi to Bronte possible for all of us.

We have been completely blown away by the awesome support and engagement shown by open water swimmers around Australia.  Hopefully on Sunday 5 December 2021 we'll get to see you all on the start line for a swim from Bondi to Bronte.
