The Great Barrier Reef Masters Games was first held in Cairns, Queensland in 2013, and has since been held biannually. The next games will be the fifth instalment and will be held in May 2021. Cairns is the ideal location to host the Games, being one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations with a myriad of local attractions, dining, adventure sports, reef activities and entertainment within close proximity to the city centre.

The highly anticipated social program will again be held over three fantastic nights – details to come!
