The 2018 Pool to Peak Ocean Swims on Sunday, 7 January

You can enter at Entry fees for each of the swims have been maintained at the same price as last year, making them not only the friendly swims but also the affordable swims. So, we hope you will come and enjoy our well-organised ocean swims at beautiful Newport Beach.

New 400m Swim Added to Program

This season we are excited to introduce a 400m ocean swim for swimmers aged 10 years and over. We have had a lot of requests from younger swimmers to be able to swim at Newport. After all, there are some excellent young swimmers out there so the 400m swim will give them the chance to participate in ocean swimming. The 400m course will also be ideal for older swimmers who would like to have a go at swimming in the ocean to develop their skills and stamina. Go for it!

Free Parking for All Northern Beaches Residents

Providing you have a valid 2017/2018 Northern Beaches Council sticker displayed on the windscreen of your car you will be able to park at the beach car park free of charge. Unfortunately, the council is not providing free parking for swimmers from outside the Northern Beaches area. However, we have arranged for parking at Porter Reserve.

Fresh Succulent Harris Farm Fruit Awaits

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors Harris Farm Markets, their fresh succulent fruit will await your return from your swim. What a great way to take away the salt taste in your mouth! If you haven’t been to a Harris Farm Markets store you are in for a treat. Their stores are where you can reconnect with the natural joy of food. Right now, they have beautiful mangoes in store and we can vouch for their wonderful flavour. Find your local store at
