Yungaburra Triathlon


Yungaburra Triathlon -  22 & 23 NOVEMBER 2014

Tinaburra Foreshore, Yungaburra, Queensland  

 

This inaugural Yungaburra Triathlon will bring visitors and participants from all over Australia.

The Triathlon will start at the Afghanistan Avenue of Honour memorial and the courses will travel through some of the most picturesque scenery in North Queensland. 

The town of Yungaburra was established in 1890 and and has attracted visitors since the early 1900’s.  Known for its historic buildings and village charm it is surrounded by ancient landscapes including waterfalls and crater lakes.  Because of its elevation (720m above sea level) it experiences a cooler climate than the areas along the coast. 

Only 1 hour drive from Cairns city & International airport, Yungaburra and the surrounding Atherton Tablelands offer a wide variety of accommodation from quaint B&B, cabins to luxury holiday homes.   Touring is a must with some of the most beautiful rainforests, waterfalls and unique bird and native wildlife.   Experience the tropical and diverse produce of the Tablelands, with its rich volcanic soils producing Australia’s finest coffee, tea and exotic fruits.

The Soldier On Organisation was founded in 2012, the organisation was inspired by the death of a friend. Lieutenant Michael Fussell was killed in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2008 and his friend John Bale looked for a way to support those who survived the blast.

He quickly realised there was no easy or accessible way for members of the Defence forces, or the public, to show their support for those wounded in battle.

With his wife Danielle, they reached out to his fellow soldiers and enlisted the help of Cavin Wilson, who had been posted in Afghanistan, involved in returning soldiers killed or wounded in action. Together they decided it was time to start an organisation that connected these men and women to the wider public, ensuring these brave men and women could be cared for and lead fulfilling and successful lives.
