5-NIGHT IRONMAN CAIRNS TOUR

Overview

IRONMAN Cairns is based in beautiful Palm Cove, the location for the IRONMAN swim start.

RacePace Tours in conjunction with Tri Travel chose Palm Cove, as this area is the best spot for race day as it takes away an early morning drive from Cairns (you can use your own bathroom on race morning too – big plus!) 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!

The 2020 tour begins on Thursday of race week with athletes and spectators arriving into Cairns and
being transferred to Palm Cove.

Each day our experienced team will assist athletes and spectators with course orientation, training
sessions, race registration and arrange a post-race breakfast. Each athlete and spectator will also
receive a tour t-shirt and hat.
