Falls creek ice pLunge

1 June 2024

Are you brave enough to face the chilly challenge of the Falls Creek Ice Plunge? This annual ritual sees fancy-dressed clad locals and visitors take a dip into the frigid waters of the Rocky Valley Lake. This traditional custom is always performed on the first day of Winter as an offering to snow gods to secure a bountiful winter season.

Not only that but all donations received go to support the incredible work of Fight MND in battling Motor Neuron Disease and searching for a cure, plus some incredible prizes donated by local stakeholders.

With hot drinks, a barbecue breakfast and warming fire pits available following the swim why not come along to the Rocky Valley Foreshore and participate? Or if three-degree water and tiny swimming trunks aren’t your thing you can just donate and enjoy a breakfast roll cooked by the SES barbecue.
