The Australian Masters Games is the biggest multi-sport participation event in the country. More than 5000 sports nuts will this October compete in 52 sports in a week-long festival of sport, activities and social events.
A big event needs a big playground, so it makes sense that this year’s games will be held at one of Australia’s most scenic holiday destinations – Tasmania’s northwest.
The ever-expanding list of attractions in this part of the world means this isn’t just a fly-in, fly-out event for competitors only.

Tasmania’s North West has put on a show during eight days of memorable Australian Masters Games action, according to Games general manager Scott Wade.
It is impressive for anyone to take up a sport in their later years and compete as a Masters athlete, but starting out as a gymnast at the age of 60 is a remarkable achievement by Alexander Beernink.
