The Coogee Island Challenge is an annual ocean swim at Coogee Beach which navigates around Wedding Cake Island.

For over 20 years now, Coogee Surf Life Saving Club has run the Coogee Island Challenge. ​This is an ocean swim event that navigates around Wedding Cake Island with the Spring Challenge in November and the Autumn Challenge in April every year.

The Coogee Island Challenge continues to increase in popularity and is a vital part of the fund raising activities of the Club, where entry fees contribute to the purchase of vital lifesaving equipment required during the ​warmer seasons.

Our registrations are open for the April Coogee Island Challenge. Choose from the 800m Junior Dash (10-12yrs), the 1km Splash’n Dash or the 2.4km Big Swim that circumnavigates Wedding Cake Island.

You can also register for both the 1km and 2.4km combined and set that extra challenge for yourself or how about entering as a team with a few friends and be in the running for some great prizes? Enter a team of 4 or more, male or female and in any of the 3 events on offer – 800m, 1km, and 2.4km, subject to age qualifications for each of those events.
