3.6km open water swim around the iconic Busselton Jetty.
Family fun, entertainment and activities all weekend at the Busselton Jetty beachfront!

The premier ocean swim around the iconic Busselton Jetty, in the south west of Western Australia. Since 1996, the Busselton Jetty Swim has grown from a local event to an internationally recognised event.

The Busselton Jetty Swim 2023 event will be our 28th year and we are planning to celebrate over 2 days with entertainment, activities and family-friendly fun, with the main swim taking place on the morning of Sunday 12th February 2023.

Solo and Teams: The course is a swim of 3.6 km around the Busselton Jetty, solo swimmers and relay teams of two and four are welcome.  The swim starts on the eastern side of the Jetty, heading out and around the end, and back to shore on the western side.

One Mile – Swim to Shore: There wouldn’t be many swims anywhere that you could start at 1 mile out to sea to swim back to the beach.  That’s jumping in at the deep end!  Swimmers will enter the water at the end of the Busselton Jetty on the western side and swim to shore, a distance of 1.6km or 1 Mile.

NEW in 2023: Simon’s 500m Shortcut Swim is a new event that starts at the eastern side of the Jetty, then heads out for about 200m before ducking under the Jetty and heading towards the finish line.  The inaugural 500m Swim will start at 1:30 pm on Saturday 11th February 2023.

Busselton Jetty Kids Swim: Junior swimmers can participate in the 222 metre Kids Swim for 8 to 12 year olds around the outside of the Swimming Jetty. This will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday 11 February 2023 

Be a part of the atmosphere and enter the best jetty swim in the world.
