Thank you to those who came and supported us on our big day—Sunday 3 February during the Channel 7 Brighton Jetty Classic.

As a fundraising partner of the annual Channel 7 Brighton Jetty Classic, the Marilyn Jetty Swim is an exciting and unique way to be part of South Australia’s largest open water swim.

What started as an idea between friends has quickly gained national and international attention, and a loyal following in Brighton, SA. 

Here’s your chance to glam up in a white bathing suit, blonde wig, red lippy and join hundreds of fabulous Marilyns at this exhilarating event, all in aid of funding cancer research, prevention and support!

What you need to know: 

  • As an official part of the Brighton Jetty Classic, you need to pay the Brighton Jetty Classic registration and the Marilyn costume fee to complete your registration.
  • Check out all the details about Being a Marilyn!
  • Start your online fundraising today

The Marilyn Jetty Swim will be bringing the love in 2019:

Sunday 3 February 2019
10.00am onwards
Brighton Jetty, Brighton SA 5048

Since beginning in 2014, the Marilyn Jetty Swim has blown Adelaide out of the water, raising over $300,000 in support of Cancer Council SA.

We guarantee you’ll feel empowered as you join this adventurous group of women from all different walks of life, united by their passion for seeing the end of cancer.

You’ll enjoy being professionally made up, before splashing into an invigorating paddle, 400m around Brighton Jetty.  And if swimming is not your style, there’s plenty to be done onshore, with Marilyns parading the shoreline, handing out sunscreen and collecting donations.

While strutting around in your swimwear may seem daunting, founder of the Marilyn Jetty Swim, Sarah Tinney, emphasises, "This is not a beauty competition, this is about having fund while supporting an important cause".



Every dollar that you raise will help change so many lives. 
For some, this help will come in the form of a phone call, a place to stay, some information or a new treatment… just when they need it most.

Our inspiring muse, Marilyn Monroe, once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world!”… We say, just give her the right bathing suit, a blonde wig and a touch of red lippy!

We hope you’ll enjoy us for this adventure of a lifetime!

The Marilyn Jetty Swim Team
