Solstice Swim

We invite you to take the plunge with us into the "cool'' waters of Cataract Gorge in Launceston on June 20 to raise money so Loaves and Fishes Tasmania can deliver more food and hope to those doing it tough. The Winter Solstice Splash marks one of the shortest days of the year (shortest day June 21)


Splashdown is at 9am on Sunday, June 20.


Cataract Gorge, first basin, Basin Road, West Launceston.


Thousands of Tasmanians rely on Loaves and Fishes to provide free emergency food relief. In Launceston, we serve up 3400kg of food every week, from school breakfast supplies to fresh produce and ready-to-eat meals.

Swimming in cold water is supposed to be good for you.

Because we can.

Prizes for highest fundraisers, either team or individual.

What now

Register individually or as a team below and raise a minimum of $50 per splasher (for teams) for the privilege of taking the plunge.

Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian's permission.

Swimming attire is compulsory.

Those with medical conditions that may be exacerbated by swimming in cold water should consult their doctor before registering.

We recommend splashers come prepared for swimming in cold water. This article provides important information about preparing for the swim.

Funds raised will be used for free emergency food relief in Tasmania.

Donations are tax deductible.

St John Ambulance and Launceston Surf Lifesaving Club will provide water safety and first aid, however splashers take part at their own risk.
