Swimmers strip to conserve the trees

Sydney's nude swim for a cause, The Sydney Skinny, returns for a second year on Sunday, February 23.

Last year's inaugural event, saw close to 1000 adventurous swimmers who de-robed and swam, organisers say, "in the name of unity and diversity, to combat body image issues or simply to celebrate being alive".

Located at Cobblers Beach, the fully ticketed swim will raise money for the rejuvenation project throughout Sydney Harbour National Park.

There are two swim distances available (300m and 900m), both of which are untimed and in calm waters to allow swimmers of all levels to get involved.

Flippers and floatation aids are welcome.

Swim waves can be pre-selected, allowing friends and groups to swim together, no matter what level or gender - with only participating swimmers allowed on the secluded beach.

Tickets are on sale at,
