Royal Life Saving WA has taken out one of the top honours at this year’s iconic Lake Argyle Swim, winning the 10km Quad category. The world-renowned event in the Kimberley attracts swimmers from across the country and offers an opportunity to tackle WA’s largest freshwater man-made lake.

The annual event has become an important feature of the Royal Life Saving calendar, with the organisation entering a team since 2018. This year, Deputy Premier Roger Cook joined the team of four, which included Royal Life Saving General Manager Community Relations, Greg Tate, President Vaughan Davies and Rottnest Swim Champion Andrew Donaldson.

Rottnest Swim Champion Andrew Donaldson with RLSSWA's Greg TateGreg Tate says the event is an important opportunity to support a local Kimberley community event, and to promote the Remote Aboriginal Swimming Pool program funded by the Department of Communities and supported by BHP, which is facilitated through Royal Life Saving WA.

“The program makes a real impact in the Kimberley, with pools in five remote Aboriginal communities across the region, including Kalumburu, Fitzroy Crossing, Bidyadanga, Warmun and Balgo," he says.

We'd like to congratulate all our team members and volunteers for their amazing efforts, and look forward to seeing what the 2023 Lake Argyle Swim brings!
