Comments: "Wow! A low cost swim, nicely organised, through Canberra. With delicious homemade soup and sweets to follow. So scenic! It starts in what feels like the wilderness and then meanders through the nations capitol and all the familiar landmarks. Less hype, more bliss. Loved it. Conditions were superb on my swim (20 degrees, flat), though I heard some years it's been down to 15 degrees, and like a washing machine. Magic. Can recommend."
