Welcome to our Swanbourne Olympics Archive
We have scanned or digitised newsletters, Olympics Programs, newspaper cuttings and magazine articles to document the history of Western Australia's famous North Swanbourne Free Beach, the site of the first Nude Olympics (of the modern era!).  Most of the links are to pdf files that will open in a new window.  The text version has been edited and includes all the original content (you can select the text) but adverts may be missing .  To see the document as it originally appeared click on the image links.

Newsletter volumes are in calendar years e.g. vol 6 was printed during 1986 (#1 Jan-86, #2 Dec-86) but the years shown in red below refer to beach seasons i.e. 1983 is 1982/83.
