After the disappointment of the forced roll-over of the 2020 Lake Argyle Swim, we are very excited to be planning a fantastic 2021 Swim for all of you, our loyal participants, sponsors and supporters.
Saturday 1st May 2021 will see a record field in the warm fresh waters of Lake Argyle. We have a fantastic event and post-event celebration line-up for our biggest and best Lake Argyle Swim ever.
Situated 75 kilometres from the town of Kununurra, Western Australia, Lake Argyle is located 40 kilometres from the Northern Territory Border and covers 980 square kilometres at normal water levels. Twenty-one times greater in size than Sydney Harbour, Lake Argyle can increase to over 80 times the size of Sydney Harbour when in flood. Long since recognised as one of the most spectacular places to visit in Australia, the Lake Argyle Swim provides experienced swimmers with an unsurpassed outback adventure.

Hitting the road this May, multi-award winning YUCK Circus are championing the female voice and having a bloody great time doing it with Regional Arts WA and Act Belong Commit’s latest Lotterywest Shows on the Go tour. YUCK Circus is a 6-strong crew of elite acrobatic gals, ready to flip off double-standards and kick art in the face. They’re not lightly throwing around women’s issues-they’re literally throwing women! Let’s get into the grit of it: they’re coming for your ‘female standards’ and rough Aussie norms. Their award-winning Western Australian company of circus chicks are tackling the uncomfortable through dance, circus, and beaut comedic timing. YUCK is fun for the faint hearted, the strong willed and the everyday battler. YUCK’s here to show the humour of the trials and tribulations of what it’s like to be a young woman growing up in Australia. But don’t get them wrong, this isn’t a girls-only, no boys allowed show. They made this content relatable through comedy gold and crazy flips, so that even Dazza from down the road will have a good time.

Set against the magnificent backdrop of the Ord Valley, Lake Kununurra, spectacular fresh water gorges, national parks and stunning reserves, the Muster rewards visitors with magical and distinctive experiences.
