This Sunday will be pretty huge for the southwest

This weekend Busselton will see Ironman WA and a cruise ship visit all in the one day.

That makes for a pretty exciting day!

The excitement will begin at 5.30am Sunday morning when the first atheletes take off for the first leg of the Ironman 70.3 event at the base of the Busselton Jetty.

The full IRONMAN WA event will kick off a short time later at 6.45am.

Then from 9.30am locals will be able to view the Sun Princess cruise ship arriving on the horizon, followed by passengers coming ashore around 9.45am.

As usual, locals can expect traffic management and road closures around town, so allow plenty of time if you want to drive in and check out the action.

At around 2.50pm it's expected the first athletes will start crossing the finishline.
