The Summer of Fun is not just about swimming – a major part of the festival is the extra curricular events. If swimming is not your thing you can always swing a club on the golf day, test your palate at the Wine Tasting, a relaxing game of bowls, or hike with Denise to Manly. There is something for everyone at the Summer of Fun.

Generation Relay takes place on Sunday 30th December at 8:15.
