Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub

The Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub swim celebrates its second event on 25 March 2017.

The Port to Pub swim commences at Leighton Beach in Perth and concludes in front of the Hotel Rottnest on Rottnest Island. The event is open to solo swimmers, and teams of two, four and six swimmers.

The event also includes a 25km ultra-marathon solo swim, which is the longest open water swim on offer in Australia, and one of the longest in the southern hemisphere. Port to Pub’s vision is to see that event become a key fixture on the national and international open water swimming calendar.

Presentations and a post event party are held at the Hotel Rottnest
The Port to Pub honours first swims across the Rottnest Channel in 1956, including the first official race to Rottnest, which followed a similar course from North Fremantle to Rottnest Island. 

The Port to Pub committee is committed to creating a long term event that promotes swimming as part of a healthy lifestyle. Combining a relaxed and friendly event with serious swimming competition makes it one of the best events on the WA calendar!
