Solstice Splash

We invite you to take the plunge with us at either Greens Beach or Kingston Beach to celebrate the winter solstice and raise money to supply winter meals for Tasmanians doing it tough.


The Greens Beach event is at 8am on Sunday, June 19. The Kingston Beach splash is at 8am on Saturday, June 25.

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

Kingston Beach is 12km south of Hobart along the southern outlet.


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 individual northern fundraiser will receive dinner for two to the value of $100 and a night's accommodation at Peppers Silo Hotel and Grain of the Silos Restaurant; the Kingston Beach winner will receive a night's accommodation at Wrest Point and a $100 dinner voucher. Note: Team totals will be divided by the number of team members to get a total for each individual.
