Cohuna Bridge to Bridge
The Cohuna Bridge to Bridge is a popular 8 km river swim on the Gunbower River in Cohuna, Victoria, Australia. It is held during the first Sunday in March. The swim between two bridges started as a dare between two locals in 1992. The course heads downstream along the slow-moving Gunbower River as swimmers compete between magnificent towering river redgum trees in 27 degree C water.
Cohuna is a rural farming community nestled on the Gunbower Creek, a major tributary of the Murray River in Northern Victoria. Cohuna is centrally located between major regional centres including Bendigo, Shepparton, Swan Hill and Echuca. From the Melbourne metropolitan area, Cohuna is a comfortable three hour drive on major Victorian highways.
