Solstice Swim

We invite you to take the plunge with us into the "cool'' waters at beautiful Greens Beach on June 27 (postponed from the original date of June 20) to raise money so Loaves and Fishes Tasmania can deliver more food and hope to those doing it tough.


Splashdown is at 9am on Sunday, June 27.

Greens Beach, on the western side of the Tamar River where it meets the sea; about 65km from either Launceston or Devonport. Head for York Town, Exeter or Beaconsfield.


Thousands of Tasmanians rely on Loaves and Fishes to provide free emergency food relief.

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

Because we can.

The highest fundraiser will receive dinner for two and a night's accommodation at Peppers Silo Hotel and Grain of the Silos Restaurant. Note: Team totals will be divided by the number of team members to get a total for each individual.

What now

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

We will contact you when your profile is live.
