The location and course

If you’re going to put your body to the test you may as well do it amongst some of the best landscapes Mother Nature has to offer, and there is no better example than at Dunsborough on Geographe Bay, WA, host of this spectacular off-road triathlon.

Tackle the course and you’ll swim in an ocean of turquoise water, run along a sculpted granite coastline interspersed with golden sandy beaches and mountain bike on roller coaster single track through fields of wildflowers and native grasstrees.

The course is amazing - a great swim, rock hopping along the coast, able to pick up a bit of speed on the trail run on the way back and then the mountain bike course just speaks for itself - it’s a mountain bikers dream with heaps of single track and twists and turns. I was smiling the whole way!” Ben Allen, X-Adventure Dunsborough Long Course Winner 2014 and 2015

Located just 30 minutes from Margaret River in the state’s South West, Dunsborough’s Geographe Bay coastline is one of the state’s most popular holiday destinations and with good reason. Stunning scenery, cosmopolitan cafes, restaurants, wineries, a variety of accommodation and a range of things to do will ensure competitors and spectators will be guaranteed a fabulous weekend.
