The Games are just as much about the social aspect as they are about the sport and this year the entire region is getting involved with multiple social offerings every night.
We've partnered with the app What's On In to help participants find out about everything happening across Tasmania's North West during the Games.
Create a log in, search for Tasmania and tap the Australian Masters Games logo. There you will find listings of all the social offerings throughout the region, including, Evenings at Hellyers Road Distillery, which will open every night during the Games for a special whisky tasting and dinner, High Tea at House of Anvers Chocolate Factory featuring local produce from the Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail, a host of live music and drink specials at pubs throughout the week, and much more.
Download the app now from iTunes and Google Play and start making plans for the festival of events happening all over Tasmania's North West this October.
