The Callala Triathlon Festival event is much loved by those who know this as the “Boutique Triathlon”. Set on the northern shores of Jervis Bay, Callala Beach is a pristine location with a laid back feel. For the first time, the Ultimate Triathlon event will be part of the Callala Triathlon Festival and the event features one of only two Club Distance races held this season. The festival also features a Sprint, Enforcer, Enticer and Miniman event, ensuring there is something for all ages and abilities!
Get in early as there is limited space and join Elite Energy this December for a hit before the Santa season kicks in.

Event Central is at the Callala Beach Community Hall and Car Park: Cnr of Quay Road and Centre St in Callala Beach.
Coming south from Sydney, you will need to find the M1 and make your way towards Nowra.
Being mindful of the increasing amount of ‘road works’ occurring around the Berry township, allow for extra travel time and even plan a break in either Kiama or Berry itself or if you can last, Nowra itself.
Then, once you have made your way thru Nowra, about 10k further south you are looking for the left turn onto Forest Road. Be mindful that this road will close at 7:30am so plan extra time to take the detoured route which is via Greenwell Point Road.
Taking this, about 3k later you then have a right turn on Callala Beach Rd . This will take you into the township and onto your required destination of the Community Hall found at the end of Centre St.
Please note the road closure times of Forest Road (where the bike course takes place for most races) and that alternative access is via Greenwell Point Road. See best access routes here.
Best parking options are also listed here.
