Dive into Newcastle’s iconic Harbour Swim

Stockton Surf Lifesaving Club’s cross-harbour challenge is back for 2022!

It’s the 25th edition of the city’s iconic harbour event which will see participants swimming from Queens Wharf to Stockton and back.

The Newcastle Harbour Swim has become a popular addition to bucket lists for many locals whether swimming for cash or crossing with flippers and a floatie.

You can either dive into the 1400 meter double-crossing or, if that sounds a little too daunting, you can register to take on the single crossing and have a friend pick you up on the other side.

Competitive swimmers taking on the1400 meter swim will have the chance to win cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

This year’s event has been highly anticipated by local swimmers who missed out on last year’s crossing that was cancelled due to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
