The Jalna Big Bay Swim + Festival are fund raising events which allow the Rotary Club of Point Gellibrand to continue our work in the community, supporting such organisations as Challenge Cancer and the National Breast Cancer Foundation in additional to local projects like the Hobsons Bay Summer Writing Prize for kids.
None of the work we do would be possible without the generous support of our sponsors who make the Jalna Big Bay Swim possible.

The Big Bay Festival is on again in 2017 with rides, for the kids, acoustic bands on the routunda and heaps of Market stalls.
Supported by Jalana, and the Hobsons Bay City Council, the festival this year will attract more people than ever!
Come down to the Commonwealth Reserve from 10am and watch the swimmer cross the line from the Big Bay Swim!
The Jalna Big Bay Swim gives open water swimmers the only chance to swim across Port Phillip Bay. Water safety is supervised by the Williamstown Swimming and Lifesaving Club and marshal boats are supplied by the Royal Victorian Motor Yacht Club.
Every entrant gets a refreshing tub of yoghourt from our major sponsor Jalna and there’ll be a big family festival on Williamstown’s Commonwealth Reserve to greet swimmers.
Cash prizes, spot prizes and bragging rights are up for grabs for all entrants.
Swimmers who enter before February 10 get a discount on their entry fee as well as a cap and commemorative tee-shirt.
This year the Big Bay Festival is set to be better than ever with more stalls and lots more for kids and adults to do!
We are going to have heaps of goodies on offer from our sponsors, a good old fashion Rotary Sausage Sizzle, bands book readings, rides everything!
Make sure to come down from 10am for some great family entertainment.
