The Hell of the West Triathlon is a long course triathlon consisting of a two kilometre swim in the mighty Macintyre River, an 80 kilometre "dead flat" cycle along the Barwon Highway heading west towards, St George and a 20 kilometre 'hot as hell' run along the picturesque Macintyre River (which consists of three loops).

2019 sees the continuance of the GTH+ Super Saturday which involves the Hell Kids Triathlon, the Firestarter Triathlon (enticer length) and a five kilometre and 10 kilometre Gundy Inferno Charity Runs.

The iconic Queensland long course triathlon event is described as the "toughest triathlon in Queensland" and one of the longest running triathlons in Australia.

Temperatures of up to 38 degrees can be expected at this time of year and this heat is what the athletes love. Many athletes use the triathlon as part of their ironman training sessions, some athletes use it as their first long course triathlon and many athletes compete as part of a team, just to add to the spirit of sportsmanship.

It is a 'bucket list' triathlon for all triathletes world-wide.

Welcome to the fastest event in the Southern Hemisphere, Australian Rocketry's Thunda Down Under (TDU).

The inaugural four-day event in 2015 saw over 1,500 onlookers descend onto a farming property in Western Darling Downs where over 1,000,000 feet in altitude was flown by rocketeers from all over the world.

Three world records were obtained including the world’s largest flying amateur rocket (full scale V2). International participants from New Zealand, USA, India, Germany, Netherlands, England, Namibia and Japan attended this true world stage of rocketry and now the invitation is being extended to the far reaches of the globe.
