Banners and packages


Apart from promotional packages listed here, we're happy to discuss arrangements tailored to your needs. These may include banners on our home page and/or state calendars and packaging a number of items here into a single fee (other than on-line entries). We can also arrange your own, discrete site complete with your own domain name.

Rates for advertising depend on the space, time period, and whether you also take entries online with us.

Base ad rates are -
  • Pillar ad (right hand side of page, 150px x up to 250px deep, appears every page) - $1,250 per month
  • Horizontal banner (560px by up to 70px deep, appears across home page only) - $1,000 per month
  • Pillar ads may be shared with other advertisers, in which case rates will be reduced.

Note: We will not promote organisations which are in conflict or competition with our own supporters.

Featured swim


Maximise your exposure by becoming a Featured swim. This includes promotion on the home page and expanded space inside, and promotion in our regular emailouts.

If you have your own event site, you can simply take Featured swim status, link to your own event site, then send swimmers back to, via a hyperlink, for entries online.

Featured Swim status costs $525 (swims run by charities and community groups) or $1,050 (swims run by private or commercial organisers either by themselves or on behalf of others).

Organiser to provide digital pics for site use and results (Excel spreadsheet) in approved format.

NB: cannot provide links to NSW or Queensland events which take on-line entries through 3rd parties. We leave our options open with regard to events in other states also cannot provide links to private (commercial) events unless they take Featured Swim status. 

Basic listing


Free - Calendar listing only with basic information and phone contact. No links to other websites or email addresses.

Sponsors' id works to promote your event. We are happy to list sponsors in text form on paid event pages. However, inclusion of event sponsors' logos and links and/or their promotions will be subject to a separate charge of $250 per sponsor. We believe that clouding an event page with sponsors' promotion, sometimes gratuitous and not germane to swim details, obscures the communication of information about your event.

Email-outs will list your coming event in regular email-outs in the two weeks leading up to swim day. 

Dedicated editorial in our regular emailouts (your own story in the emailout) focusing on your event: $750 (3), or $600 (2), or $350 (1)

Dedicated emails (focussing only on your event): $1,350 (3), $1,000 (2), $600 (1)

Note: We will not promote organisations which are in conflict or competition with our own supporters.

On-line entries


8.5 per cent of revenue (first 250 online entries), 8 per cent (next 251-500 online entries), 7.5 per cent (500 plus online entries).

If your event signs up with Featured Swim status and online entries for three years or more, online entry commission will be a flat 7 per cent, and we guarantee not to lift any rates for your event, including the cost of Featured Swim status, for the term of that commitment.

Event is responsible for GST. 

Payments will be made immediately after the event. For large events, progress payments can be made prior to the event by arrangement. 

Online entries take essential competitor information and can be configured to include, for example, entry of escort paddlers, etc. Team entries will involve a combination of individual entry and only team entry forms.
