The Australian Beach Games Festival is an exciting new multisport festival that will bring sports which are played both on and around the beach together. There will also be entertainment and lifestyle over one huge weekend and in six states across Australia!

The beach is an important feature of many Australians' lives and culture and many Australians have grown up going to the beach for holidays and playing in the sand and surf. This is a very typical "Australian scene" and most people relate Australia to its fine beaches with clean yellow sand.

ABG in 2018
There will be 15 sporting events to choose from across this action-packed weekend and a Health and Lifestyle village, including food truck carnival, combined with a unique beach festival of sport, music and wellbeing.

It is anticipated that there will be over 8,000 participants and 60,000 spectators over all the State locations, and it is open to:


So there will be national and international players competing at the game, as well as live concerts from some of Australia's leading performers and DJ's.

ABG School Sports Cup is about giving the local schools in the region an opportunity to participate in the Australian Beach Games.

This could be via competitive competition with a Schools v Schools competition, or just a "round robin non-competitive fun event" which was a great success at a previous function.

The Sports will be AFL 9, Dodgeball and Volleyball, and ages will be for primary and secondary schools.
