Gippsland Jersey Winter Solstice Sunrise Swim

Immerse yourself in the magic of the Winter Solstice Sunrise Swim at the stunning Gippsland Lakes. This yearly ritual, hosted by Gippsland Jersey, provides an invigorating experience that not only boosts physical health but also promotes better mental well-being. The benefits of cold water immersion are scientifically proven to help alleviate depression, anxiety, and stress by triggering the release of endorphins and reducing inflammation. As you take the plunge into the icy waters, you’ll be surrounded by a supportive community, and together you’ll celebrate the start of winter and reflect on the year that’s been.

The Winter Solstice is a time for renewal and a reminder of the inner strength we all possess. By facing your fears and taking part in this event, you’ll gain a sense of resilience and come away feeling refreshed and invigorated. Join us for the Winter Solstice Sunrise Swim and be a part of this powerful experience that celebrates the beauty of nature and the human spirit.

Prizes from Budgy Smuggler up for grabs!
