There is a certain set of people called icebergs who swim all year round, particularly in winter. Some countries have events to celebrate winter swimming. It is purported to have special health benefits.

Yes - although I swam in nice and warm areas that don't get as cold as Victoria. So it wasn't as bad!
Yes, when I was younger I live at Coogee Beach.
I went to the beach nearly every day, no matter what...loved it.
Yes, it's fun and the shock is supposed to boost the immune system, improve circulation and increase libido!

When I was a kid I did it often but not these days!
Not unless I am on vacation somewhere tropical ;)
I used to run on the beach in winter and have a quick dip after
the run. I'm not as close to a beach now so don't anymore.

No , i have never tried that.
No, it's too bloody cold.

I love swimming in the ocean during winter when I'm visiting the tropics. The beaches around Broome, Cairns and the islands of the Great Barrier Reef are gorgeous at this time of the year. Although it's not as hot as summer, the ocean is always pleasantly warm in the middle of the day...just perfect for a dip. Anywhere further south...probably not!
Yes and it is invigorating. Once you get your breath back that is!
Yes, I have a few times only -hated it -rather hated it when I got in and then again getting out....only tried it a few times and gave up.

Just a small correction - they are called Icebergers, and a group operate at the Brighton Sea baths.
Yes.
As live in sub-tropical City, have no problems swimming in Ocean in Winter, as it's warm!
