Thank You For Supporting The NQ Games 2024

The largest multi-sport competition in regional Australia

3 - 6 May 2024

The North Queensland Games celebrates its 40th year in 2024, it will host 25+ sports in Cairns and surrounding regions and welcomes athletes of all ages to attend. The NQ Games offers a diverse, unique and dynamic event for athletes of all abilities, at all competition levels to celebrate and compete in their chosen sports. Competitions will be held from Friday 3 May to Monday 6 May 2024 at a variety of sporting venues across Cairns and surrounding regions.

A free community event will be held on Friday 3 May 2024 as we officially open the NQ Games. The Opening Ceremony will include the  competitors and officials march past, opening celebrations and fun family-friendly events. Our Official NQ Games Ambassador Scooter (Grant Patterson) will be in attendance along with Joyce Lester OAM, Leah Rueben, Libby Cook-Black and Matt Smith leading the anticipated lightening of the Origin Energy Cauldron.

This event will bring North Queensland locals together in celebration of sports and our active lifestyles.

“The heart of these Games remains the unparalleled sense of community enthusiasm, unity and pride we hold so dear. This is a golden opportunity for competitors to compete in front of a roaring home crowd. The NQ Games are more than just a regional competition; they serve as a platform comparable to the State level, giving our regional North Queensland athletes the stage they truly deserve. We’re not only fostering our current athletes but inspiring future generations to reach for the stars”.
