Great Barrier Reef Masters Games

The Great Barrier Reef Masters Games was first held in Cairns, Queensland in 2013, and is a biannual event. Now in its fourth Games, the Masters will be held from 22 to 26 May 2019.

Cairns is the ideal location to host the Games, being one of Australia's most popular holiday destinations with a myriad of local attractions, dining, adventure sports, reef activities and entertainment within close proximity to the city centre.

2,000 masters-aged men and women from Australia, Oceania and South East Asia are anticipated to compete in 20 individual and team sports across the four days of competition with sports for all masters ages and interests. There is also a fantastic social program hosted at The Jack on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
