IRONMAN Australia (+ IRONMAN 70.3)


As one of the longest running IRONMAN events on the global circuit, IRONMAN Australia boasts 31 years of historic moments.

Established in 1985, IRONMAN Australia remains an iconic global event consisting of a 3.8 kilometre swim, 180 kilometre bike course and 42.2 kilometre run, taking in the best of the Greater Port Macquarie region on what is arguably one of the most scenic IRONMAN courses in the world.

Taking place concurrently with IRONMAN Australia is the renowned IRONMAN 70.3, fondly known as the half IRONMAN. This incredible IRONMAN festival will take place in Greater Port Macquarie each year.


If you have any questions or concerns about the event that aren't addressed on the IRONMAN Australia website, please call the IRONMAN Australia Hotline on 1300 761 384.

Got kids aged 5 to 13 years of age? The ever-popular IRONKIDS may just be the ticket. The new 'run only' format will feature a genuine IRONMAN finish-shute finish (and all finishers get a medal)!
