See students hit the Gold Coast with something other than partying on their mind. Whether you’re an aspiring student athlete, or simply a fan of fiery competition, why not pay a visit to the Gold Coast September 25 to 30 for the Australian University Games? It’s the flagship event of the national university sporting calendar and a showcase of some of the best competitors in the country.

Held annually (every second year on the Gold Coast), The Australian University Games are Australia’s largest annual multi-sport event. The games attract over 6000 participants, many of whom are Olympic standard. The program features more than 28 individual and team sports with individuals and universities, out to win gold. Events include Australian Rules football, Kendo, Ultimate Frisbee, and of course, everyone’s favourite spectator sports, running and swimming. It’s fun, friendly and always exciting.

To complement the Games, there’s a side program of social events that will keep the festival atmosphere alive for the entire week. And there are always plenty of activities on the Gold Coast, with its spectacular beaches, great restaurants, hip bars and clubs, and shopping to keep everyone entertained.

If you’d like to come with family or friends, why not stay close to the action in a beachfront apartment? Alternatively slightly further afield there are a range of fabulous holiday homes that sleep up to ten.
