The Cocos Keeling Islands Tourism Association is proud to host the annual Lagoon Swim, which welcomes solo swimmers and teams to put cap and goggles to the test as they plunge into the tropical water, dodge floating coconuts and resist distraction by coral and turtles in a bid to make it from one side to the other. Checkout photos from the 2013 Lagoon Swim on Facebook and contact the Visitor Centre for more information.
2014 will witness the 100 year anniversary of 'The Battle of Cocos'. It took place on the shores of the Cocos Keeling between the German raider, SMS Emden, and the HMAS Sydney I on the 9th November 1914.
The 2014 Cocos Keeling Islands Lagoon Swim will be a commemorative event. The Lagoon Swim will be held on Saturday 5th April.
Registrations for the 2014 Swim will open on Saturday 1st February and close on Friday 28th February. A downloadable regsitration form will be posted here.
Bookings for travel to Cocos for the event can be made now through Island Explorer Holidays.
