Perth tourism to shine with 18th Australian Masters Games

Published on : Thursday, March 14, 2019

Perth has secured the rights to host one of Australia’s largest multi-sport festivals, the 18th Australian Masters Games, in 2021. The biennial event involves more than 50 different sports for people over the age of 30.

 

Regarded as one of the premier sporting events on the Australian mass participation sporting calendar, the 2021 event will be only the second time Perth has hosted the Games. The last time it was staged in Western Australia was in 1993.

 

Tourism Minister Paul Papalia said, “Western Australian holiday destinations will be promoted at a pop-up booth at the event, so visitors will be able to book trips, tours and accommodation across the State.

 

“This will help drive visitors to stay longer, explore Perth and disperse to WA’s regions while they are here.

 

More than 7,000 competitors will take part in the Games, with about 5,500 visitors expected to travel to Perth specifically for the event.

 

The Australian Masters Games is also known for its wide range of social events, with an extensive program of live music and entertainment providing opportunities for attendees to experience Perth’s vibrant entertainment scene and premium food and wine. People visiting for the Games will also be encouraged to spend longer in the State and explore regional WA.
