Australia DAY GAMES  

Australians love their sport & cold beer, so we created a series of sporting events combining the two: SHRIMP ON THE BARBIE, WALKON, 2UP, THONG THROW, SHARK TOSS & FOOTY KICK.

Founded back in 2009 by a couple of Xpats in Stockholm, the Australia Day Games are now one of the few ways Xpat Australian's can qualify to get back into fortress Australia, which is now only letting in Australian Olympians and our other international sporting champion (except for our IPL cricketers).

Qualifying events are held all-year around the globe wherever it's warm, with national and global champs determined in late Jan/ early Feb each year.

THE Games Explained

The Australia Day Games is combines sport, beer & Australian mateship into an afternoon of events that the average Australian with a cold beer should excel at.  While no ADay Games is ever the same, they usually include the core events: Shark Toss, Shrimp on the Barbie, Two-Up, Thong Throw, Footy Kick, plus the American Beer Olympics classics, The Walk-on, Beer Pong & Slap Cup. Each team represents its country or cause of choice, the top two teams at the end of the day play of in a best of 3 Grand Final.
