What is the swim distance?

Is there breakfast available after the swim? After the race, we hope you will join us for a BBQ breakfast of Tassal grilled Salmon or egg and bacon rolls.

What time are the presentations? Presentations are conducted around 20-30minutes minutes after the last swimmer crosses the finish line.

Where are the presentations?  The BBQ and presentations are held behind the toilet block at the middle of Kingston Beach.

I am travelling from interstate, what are some other activities I can do around Hobart? An ideal itinerary for the weekend would be to visit the Salamanca market on the Saturday morning, cruise to MONA on the MONAROMA ferry, dine in at some of the restaurants on the wharf and experience some fresh local produce and then finish your weekend off by joining us at the swim on the Sunday morning.
