2017 Australian University Games
Since its inception in 1993, the Australian University Games has grown to be Australia's largest annual multisport event. Held each September/October, the Games is renowned for providing a friendly but competitive environment for Australian university athletes and is the flagship event on the national university sporting calendar.
The Games are recognised as a perfect opportunity to provide university athletes, many of whom are of Olympic standard, to compete against each other in a national multi sport event. Each year the Games sporting schedule is made up of more than 35 individual and team sports. As such, the Games has built up a reputation as a not to be missed, event attracting over 8,000 participants each year.
Off the sporting field, these student athletes enjoy the offerings of Queensland's Gold Coast which enhances the event experience of the participants and supporters.
