As one of the longest running IRONMAN events in the circuit, IRONMAN Australia boasts 30 years of historic moments. Starting in Forster-Tuncurry in 1985, through to today in Port Macquarie, the home of the event since 2006.
Established in 1985, IRONMAN Australia remains an iconic global event - taking place in Port Macquarie, New South Wales - four hours north of Sydney. From the swim course in Hastings River to the bike course along the Pacific Ocean and run course in the heart of Port Macquarie, the event is an race that competitors come back to year after year.
