The swim of a lifetime!

The Sydney Skinny is the most liberating fun you’ll ever have. Join thousands of swimmers, from all over the world, who will leap out of their comfort zones for this untimed, joyous, skinny dip in the stunning Sydney Harbour.

There are two courses, a 300m for beginners and a 900m for the more seasoned ocean swimmers.

We do it for:


This is a fully ticketed, exclusive event and only swimmers are allowed on the beach.

After your swim to protect your modesty and dry off you will receive the iconic sarong. It’s a cherished collectable that warmly welcomes you into the Sydney Skinny community.

After the swim (and fully clothed), we celebrate everything that is good in the world with a joyous festival.

Best of all, we all participate in doing good! We are fundraising for the Charlie Teo Foundation helping them in their fight against Brain Cancer.

Join us! One thing we are certain about is that nobody ever regretted it!
