Great Barrier Reef Ocean Swim Series

LEISEL JONES, OAM

Ambassador to the Great Barrier Reef Ocean Swim Series

‘I’m really excited to be supporting this swim series – there are truly no other swims like these anywhere in the world. To take part in an event swimming directly over the Great Barrier Reef is something you’ll never forget!’
