Hot on the heels of the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, Port Macquarie will take its turn to host a large, international sporting event when IRONMAN Australia comes to town off on Sunday 6th May.
Port Macquarie has been home to this international triathlon event since 2006, with the last few years seeing the IRONMAN 70.3 (age group race) run concurrently with IRONMAN Australia. This iconic, global event may have been established in 1985 but the buzz it brings to the city never gets old.
This year, while competitors in the open division make their way round the 3.8 kilometre swim leg, the 180 kilometre bike course and the 42.2 kilometre run, children between 5 and 13 can participate in IRONKIDS, a fun run along one section of the IRONMAN course with the excitement of crossing the same finish line.
The best part about your Port Macquarie accommodation at Northpoint Apartments is that you’ll have a front row seat to both the IRONMAN and IRONKIDS events. If you’re in one of our many waterside apartments you’ll have views from your verandah – but even if you’re not, you’ll only be steps from the action when you choose Northpoint Apartments for your Port Macquarie holiday.
