Lake Argyle Swim
The First National Kimberly Lake Argyle Swim is held in Lake Argyle in Western Australia. The 10 km (6.2-mile) or 20 km (12.4-mile) marathon swims are for solo swimmers, duos (teams of 2) or teams of 4.
Situated 75 kilometres from the town of Kununurra, Western Australia, Lake Argyle is located 40 kilometres from the Northern Territory Border and covers 980 square kilometres at normal water levels. Long since recognised as one of the most spectacular places to visit in Australia, the Lake Argyle Swim provides experienced swimmers with an unsurpassed outback adventure.
Clean freshwater awaits all solo, duo or quad teams, no sharks, bluebottles, ocean rips or chafing, just a very pleasant 22 - 26 degrees in 980 square kilometres of man-made lake to enjoy.
Solo, duo and quad swimmers require a support boat that is a minimum of 4m in length.
Solo, duo and quad swimmers require a support paddler/kayaker. It is compulsory that paddle craft be used to assist the swimmer/s and skipper on the day. If you are traveling from outside of the area the committee will assign someone to assist you in finding appropriate support paddler/s.
Any suit improving buoyancy or propulsion would exclude the wearer/team from winning prizes; anyone who wants to wear one is still able to participate.
