Tathra Swimrise Group | Bega Valley

There’s no better way to start the day than a dip in the cool ocean as the sun rises, followed by coffee, croissant and a catch up… on us! Each fortnight meet us at the beach for a quick, revitalising swim, before heading to a local cafe for a coffee, a chat and some sweet treats. A regular group catch up format which combines the benefits of being in nature, with the benefits of physical activity while forming strong social bonds in the community.

Beginning your day with a swim first thing in the morning has been shown to energise your brain, increase oxygen flow and make it easier to think and perform throughout the day. Being in nature has been proven to lower blood pressure, stress hormone levels, increase self esteem, reduce anxiety and improve mood. Similar benefits can be seen as a result of regular social connection.

This free activity is for first responder families. (Eligibility here). Children can be registered as part of a family. BYO beach gear – swimmers, towel, change of clothes and goggles if needed.
