Australian Deaf Games – The Australian Deaf Games is the pinnacle multi-sport event for Deaf people in Australia involving up to twenty (20) sports and attracting more than 1000 competitors and participants from all over Australia, some neighboring Pacific nations and, potentially, one of two other overseas countries.

Interstate deaf competition in Australia began with a friendly cricket match between South Australia and Victoria in 1895. The competition expanded to include tennis, table tennis, chess and draughts every two or three years in major capital cities in rotation. There was no official national organisation and the ‘carnivals’, as these competitions were called, were conducted on an ad hoc basis. At the end of World War II nearly all states were taking part in more than one sport at the ‘carnivals’. For more information, go to
