Wild Swimming Australia

Dive into our interactive map to discover beautiful wild swimming holes in Australia.

Ready to clear your mind and body of the city smog by swimming beneath a waterfall? Or break up your hot, tiring journey with a quick dip in a crystal clear swimming hole? Perhaps you’re looking for something to do with the kids that gets them outdoors and playing the way nature intended. Whatever your reasons for wanting to find an epic swimming hole, one thing’s for sure: you want to spend less time searching and more time having fun and experiencing the bliss of wild swimming.

Despite Australia’s wealth of incredible watery wildernesses, finding paradise has often meant trawling the internet and driving for hours only to be disappointed with a dried up creek bed.

But no longer!

Our wild swimming map makes it easy to discover swimming spots close to your current location in no time at all. You can also use the filters on the locations page to find swimming holes which tick all your boxes when planning a holiday or day trip in Australia.

We have over 1000 wild swimming holes in our database which will be added to the map over the coming weeks and we’re developing a Wild Swimming Australia app. We’ll also feature ways that you can connect with other adventurers looking to swim or ask for info from people who have already swum at a particular location.

Now there is nothing standing in the way of you getting out there, swimming in the wild and enjoying all the beauty and health benefits of Australia’s watery natural resources.

 So come on in…the water’s lovely.

Wild Swimming Australia would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, of elders past and present, in which our business takes place. See here to learn more about the significance of the land and water to indigenous Australians.
