North Bondi Oceana Classic Swim

13/02/2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

The North Bondi Oceana Classic is one of the staples on Australia’s ocean swimming calendar. The event is proudly supported by Oceana.

With a 1km course and a 2km course, it attracts participants from all over Australia who come out to enjoy a carnival atmosphere at North Bondi.

If you’re after an ocean swim on Australia’s most famous beach, the North Bondi Classic is not to be missed.

As part of the event, there are two swims to take on: a 1km and a 2km. With the way the event is structured, it is possible to take on both swims if you’re especially motivated.


1 swim: $45

2 swims: $70

It’s an event that can attract hundreds of competitors, so make sure you get in early.

Swim Courses

Both the 1km and 2km courses are fairly straightforward, following the buoys around as you swim out from the North Bondi Surf Lifesaving Club.

North Bondi Beach itself is only a moderately hazardous beach. It’s partially protected by Ben Buckler headland, and reduces wave height to 1m at the northern end. The further south you go down the beach, the possibility of bigger surf and tricky rips increases. The exact path the North Bondi Roughwater follows has the potential to change, depending on conditions on the day.

1km Ocean Swim

The 1km course is a smaller, replica of the main 2km swim that sits squarely inside the bay, not quite reaching the far flung corners like the 2km. Use this as your main goal, or go long by using it as a warm up to the 2km. The 1km starts from 9am.

2km ocean swim

The 2km course starts in front of the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club and reaches into every corner of the bay before returning to the same spot on the beach. The 2km starts from 10.30am.
