Triathlon weekend

AAC Falls Creek had visitors of a very different nature over the weekend of 12/13 February.
Supporting the 2XU Falls Creek Triathlon were a contingent of twenty four lifesavers from Elwood and Brighton Life Saving Clubs. 

They arrived with six IRB’s and Rescue Boards on Saturday afternoon, setting up their equipment in the flat ground in front of Bogong Ski Club and the play ground. 


Very early Sunday morning they had their work cut out, setting the swim course and providing water safety for the six hundred or so swimmers entering the water to complete the 1.8Km course in Rocky Valley Dam. 

The Lodge also hosted the competitor video making production team.

The next major event at the lodge will be the THREE PEAKS CHALLENGE over the March long weekend.
