WHAT IS AUSTRALIAN BEACH GAMES

The Australian Beach Games Festival is an exciting new multisport festival that will bring together sports played on and around the beach, entertainment and lifestyle over one mammoth weekend in five states across Australia.

The Beach is an integral part of Australian culture, and Australians have grown up going to the beach for holidays and playing in the sand and surf. This concept captures everything that Australian love about the beach.
