About the Australian Masters Games

The Australian Masters Games is a week-long festival of sport that brings together weekend warriors from around Australia, and the world, to enjoy an extensive sporting and social program in an exciting holiday destination.

The 2021 Australian Masters Games will take place from Saturday 9 October - Saturday 16 October 2021 in Perth, Western Australia.

The Australian Masters Games is the original and the best masters event in Australia. The first Australian Masters Games was held in Tasmania in 1987 and set the stage for large multisport festivals for the masters age group (30 years and over) in Australia. This is just the second time that Perth has hosted the Australian Masters Games, the first being the fourth edition back in 1993, and it promises to be spectacular!
