Changed Traffic Conditions

The 2024 Multisport World Championships will be hosted in Townsville from Wednesday 14th August – Sunday 25th August 2024.

Google My Maps - Road Closures for Townsville
2024 Multisport World Championships

There will be some Road and Carpark Closures during the event.  This information provides the dates that the roads will be affected.  The closures will only be in place during the actual race and then access arrangements will be implemented in all areas pre and post races.

Police, Main Roads and your local government have approved for these changes to take place.  We aim to provide courses and venues that provide the least impact to local community and businesses.  This event would not be possible without the support of the local community – so thank you!

Pallarenda – Access

Residents and businesses in the Pallarenda area will be affected on the following dates by the racing at the 2024 World Triathlon Multisport Championships:

  • Friday 16 August – 6.30am to 1.00pm
  • Sunday 18 August – 5.30am to 12.30pm
  • Sunday 25 August – 5.00am – 7.30pm

We aim to provide courses and venues that provide the least impact to local community and businesses.  As this is the only access point to this area we will be offering a free shuttle bus service for locals to use.  So if you need to get out during the race times you can park you car near the Queensland Police Academy and the shuttle will pick up you up or drop you back to your home whilst the racing is underway.  Booking for this service will open on the 14th July.

If you have any further queries please email info@townsville.triathlon.org
