The inaugural Soldier On Triathlon will draw participants and spectators to the Afghanistan Avenue of Honour memorial, Yungaburra to help raise funds for our wounded warriors and awareness of the Soldier On organisation.
”Soldier On is about Australians coming together to show their support for our physically and psychologically wounded – we will always have their backs. It’s about giving those who have served our country the dignity they deserve and the chance to do and be whatever they choose through; providing access to inspirational activities, supporting rehabilitation and providing opportunities that empower individuals.”

The village of Yungaburra is surrounded by countryside which has been influenced and shaped by many, now extinct, volcanoes. The landscape is stunning, with outstandingly beautiful natural attractions: crater lakes, waterfalls and World Heritage rain forest. This tranquil and picturesque village is situated 720 metres (2400 feet) above sea level. This ideal holiday destination is cooler than the coastal area during summer, and in winter the mild days and refreshing nights are an excuse to enjoy a crackling log fire.
Yungaburra is easily accessible from Cairns, just over one hour up the Gillies Range or come from Cairns’ northern beaches via the Kuranda Range. If you are driving north from Townsville you can drive the Palmerston Highway from Innisfail. See our Atherton Tablelands maps page.
Supercharge your Yungaburra holiday experience by calling in to the Visitor Information Centre, located directly across the street from the Lake Eacham Hotel at the Maude Kehoe Park. The friendly volunteers will be glad to help you with your holiday needs.
