Ironman Returns After Four Years

For the first time, Smiths Beach in Yallingup will host the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ironman & Ironwoman series 2013-14. Tourism Minister Liza Harvey said the beach would be the venue for the first two rounds of the event. “It is a great coup for Western Australia as it is one of only three states to feature in the competition,” Ms. Harvey said. The last time the state hosted the event was in 2009 when over 80,000 people showed up.

About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
