Augusta is as far south-west as you can go; a quiet coastal town home to long sandy beaches, wild landscapes and an abundance of fresh air. It’s half an hour south from Margaret River, and 310kms south of Perth.

The landscape around Augusta is perfect for off-road adventures with its wild rocky coastline, undulating hinterland covered in dense wilderness, sheltered bays and secluded beaches.

There really is nothing like it. Come and see for yourself and get amongst the ultimate race atmosphere in the wild landscapes of south west Western Australia – a real-life adventure paradise.


There’s something on offer for everyone; with three different events for adventurers of all ages, and four different off-road disciplines including ocean swimming and kayaking, trail running and mountain biking. Choose your event and get your entry in.
