Our team base in beautiful Palm Cove enables athletes and supporters a relaxed race morning, being positioned next to the IRONMAN swim start.

We chose Palm Cove as this area is the best spot for race day as it takes away an early morning drive from Cairns and allows easy access to ride the best part of the bike course on Friday morning and makes bike drop off a breeze – all while staying in the best part of Cairns.

The restaurants and cafe’s are great here too!
