The 2021 Australian Swimming Championships will see Australian titles awarded to open and top age athletes. Heats will be swum combined with three finals per event, with the youngest age swum first.

In a point of difference to recent program schedules, finals will be swum in the morning and heats in the evening, replicating and preparing athletes for what they will experience in Tokyo.
