2015 Yungaburra Triathlon

Following the success of the inaugural event in 2014, the Yungaburra Triathlon proudly supporting Soldier On will be held on 14 & 15 November 2015 at the Avenue of Honour, Tinaburra Foreshore. It is expected to once again draw a large crowd to this premier outdoor event.

“To continue the development of the Tablelands as a unique outdoor recreation destination with strong military ties, the Yungaburra Triathlon aims to entice visitors and competitors to the region to participate in a sporting event that raises money for, and awareness of the Soldier On organisation, whilst also encouraging overnight stays and exploration within the region and return visit,” said Tablelands Regional Council Mayor Rosa Lee Long.

The organising committee is currently seeking sponsors for this event which will provide a unique opportunity to align your business to a charitable cause. A sponsorship prospectus is available from the event website or by emailing

Five Triathlon events will be held over the weekend and will include Olympic and Sprint courses on Sunday morning and Enticer, Corporate and Kids events on Saturday afternoon.

“This year we are proud and honoured to have Michael Lyddiard as the Ambassador for the Yungaburra Triathlon,” stated committee Chair, Cr Rod Marti.

“We will be taking on board feedback and lessons learnt from the inaugural event to ensure that this event continues to grow and become a significant boost for our local economy and signature event for the Tablelands,” added Cr Marti.

Tablelands Regional Council has endorsed the Yungaburra Triathlon dates for the next three years, occurring on 14 & 15 November 2015, 12 & 13 November 2016 and 11 & 12 November 2017.
