Australia – Cooly Classic – Swimming At Sea In Coolangatta (Part 1)

Sun, surf, sand and sports: brands of Australian beach culture will be on display at the Coolangatta Beach Swimming Association. Swimming at sea takes place throughout Australia, but ‘Cooly Classic’ in April is one of the most iconic swimming. Both swimmers and spectators gather on the Gold Coast to take part in a challenging swim and festive atmosphere on the beach.

Accompanied by Australian steel people on the 2 and a half kilometer long swim course, familiarize yourself with the water at the beginner swim lines or join the sand cheer team. After the race, Gold Coast awaits visitors. Located on the golden beach, learn to surf and explore the Aboriginal culture of the region. Watch whales, jump on islands or explore coastal areas covered by rainforest.

The course begins at Rainbow Beach, home to the famous Snapper Rocks surf. Surfers like “break” because it produces the longest wave in the world. For swimmers at sea, the endless stream of water is a big challenge. The 2 and a half kilometer long swim route passes through two other large “breaks” before reaching the finish line at Kirra Beach. If you feel danger, there is another 500m swim for younger and less experienced swimmers.

Visitors can soak up the waves with professional swimmers wearing Speedo, or join the crowd cheering them on the beach. Come there and soak up the excitement on Rainbow Beach after gunfire or watch the players gather their strength at the finish line on Kirra Beach.

Regardless of how you participate, you’ll find a special friendship for this classic Australian beach event. Ice cream vendors waggle between professional steelers, senior swimmers dressed in leather and children wearing swimsuits. Regardless of their age or swimming skills, these people are images of Australian optimism.

Optimism is easy on these beautiful, sunny beaches. If you like surfing, you’ll find plenty of paradise for yourself. Join the professional surfers on the big waves of Rainbow Beach, Currumbin Beach and Burleigh Mound. Or learn to surf at Spit Beach or Greenmount, where the waves are softer but also continuous.

Swim in protected waters in Kirra, Mermaid and Coolangatta. Meet subtropical fishes on an adventurous dive around the Scottish Prince shipwreck off Main Beach. Snorkel with turtles in the waters off the Gold Coast or take part in a whale watching cruise from Coolangatta.
