The route is very simple to follow. Starting at the Boat house end of the lake on the scoreboard side, you will swim straight up the lake before making a right-hand turn to swim straight across. You will then make a 2nd right turn to head back towards Boat houses and complete a second lap. On your second lap, you will exit the water in front of the Grandstand and pass under the finish gantry.
This is a four lap course. Similar to the 2.5km route, it starts at the boat house heading up the lake with the scoreboard on your left, before making two right turns at the buoys to go across the lake then head back towards the starting end where you can stop at the swim up drink station or continue. On your final lap you will exit at the Grandstand seating and pass under the finish gantry to complete your event.
