Calling all thrill seekers: Locals to take a leap of faith for Mandurah Giant Bridge Swing

Adrenaline junkies will take a leap of faith and plunge from the Dawesville Bridge next month for the third annual Mandurah Giant Bridge Swing.

The event not only raises important funds, but also the hairs on the back of your neck, and demands a lot of courage from participants.

Those brave enough to take part have been hard at work garnering sponsorship to earn extra funds for their chosen charity, and will make the jump from the bridge to cap off their campaigns.

Now an iconic fundraiser on the summer calendar, it is Western Australia's only bridge swing, the highest swing in Australia and enough to make most people's stomachs turn.

This year, organisers have dropped the mandatory $1000 fundraising to open the event up to anyone interested for just the registration fee of $150.

Brought to life by the City of Mandurah, Visit Mandurah and not-for-profit organisation, Urban Descent, the opportunity to swing from the terrifyingly tall bridge is unique.

Mandurah mayor Rhys Williams, who took the plunge in 2018, sent his best wishes to everyone involved.

"The countdown is on to the Urban Descent Mandurah Bridge Swing, and we wish everyone good luck with their charity fundraising efforts and their upcoming epic swings from the Port Bouvard Bridge," he said.

"Having participated myself last year, I can say that the swing is truly hair-raising and it was great to see Mandurah from a different view."

For those who are less inclined to seek such thrills, there will be plenty of entertainment on offer over the weekend.

Enjoy family-friendly activities, live music and big screens broadcasting all the swing action live.

Thrill seekers will free-fall from the bridge from December 6-8.
