Veteran Games Australia has been in development behind the scenes for quite some time, and now we are ready to get rolling.


Veteran Games Australia 2023 will be the inaugural launch of an annual event designed to celebrate and showcase the skills and excellence of our Veteran Community in a format that is exciting and engaging for the wider public.

Competitions will include a Team Obstacle Course challenge, Team Tug-of-War, and a number of other Military styled activities designed to test the teamwork and problem solving skill-sets of competitors. Veterans (current and former serving) will be required to form and register their own team of eight (8) and pass a basic fitness test in order to compete.


This is a first of its kind type of event and will be held during the period 29 September – 02 October on the Gold Coast. The format will consist of Elimination Heats followed by the Finals Day to be held on Monday 02 October 2023. This has been scheduled to coincide with the King’s Birthday Public Holiday in Queensland at the majority of School Holidays across Australia.

The venue will be developed into a festival experience catered to families and the general public, culminating with the Finals Day that will also be streamed online.


Veteran Games is a proactive health initiative, focusing on physical and mental health outcomes for all involved, while working to shape a positive and aspirational contemporary Veteran narrative. These outcomes have been specifically designed to address key findings from the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide Interim Report.
