On the last weekend in October each year, Noosa Australia fills with thousands of fit people and fantastic sporting equipment, all vying for the top honour in one event - the Noosa Triathlon on the Sunshine Coast. 

The Noosa Triathlon is one of the biggest triathlon events in Australia and attracts over 8,500 triathlon competitors and over 10,000 across the whole festival.  The course includes a 1500m swim in a sheltered canal, a 40km cycle in an undulating road course through the area surrounding Noosa on the Sunshine Coast and a 10km run through Noosa Sound leading back to Noosa Queensland.

Start, finish and transitions are all at the Noosa Heads Lions Triathlon Park. Given the size of the field there are total road closures for the cycle and run sections of the course to ensure competitors safety. You can compete in the whole event or only do one section as part of a larger team. The weather for the Noosa event is generally warm and humid, with wetsuit rulings happening close to the day based on water temperatures.

The Triathlon in Noosa is just one of the many events held as part of the Noosa Multi Sport festival including a kids only triathlon – Superkidz, the Noosa run swim run for all levels of skill and abilities, a Celebrity Golf tournament, the Tour de Noosa cycle competition, the breakfast fun run, Volleyball skins, the Noosa Ocean swim and the Noosa special triathlon for athletes with special intellectual needs.

To rest your weary muscles after competing, there is an abundance of accommodation available for the Noosa Triathalon Multi Sport festival. Most competitors choose either Noosa hotels or self contained apartments in Noosa.
