The Mooloolaba Mile is a feature on Queensland’s ocean swimming calendar and continues to attract swimmers from all over Australia.
The main event, a one mile (1.6km) course is well within reach for beginners and novice ocean swimmers an ideal step up from traditional short course events. The 3.0km Marathon distance is a great new option for seasoned swimmers and aspiring triathletes looking to push their limits.

Beginning at Mooloolaba’s South-Eastern end (The Spit), the One Mile course (1.6km) follows an M shaped path north towards the finish line. The first turn is located directly out from the start near the Mooloolah river mouth. Midway, the course brings swimmers back towards the breakers then out again to the final turn.
