Upcoming Events

Indigenous Nationals (TBA June 2024) 

A week-long multisport competition for indigenous student-athletes. The annual event aims to bring together student-athletes from universities across Australia to compete in a variety of sports and ultimately crown one university team the champion of the games. Indigenous Nationals is an amazing environment to not only celebrate the rich sporting culture of indigenous Australia but to also acknowledge the heritage and history of the participating student-athletes. 

Express your interest in participating by contacting The Tjabal Centre. 

International Student Sports Day (TBA August/September 2024) 

The International Students Sports Day was an initiative started in 2019 to connect international students across the ACT and NSW through sport, as well as providing an avenue for sight-seeing around the nation's capital city. University of NSW (UNSW) and Western Sydney University (WSU) join the ANU and UC universities in a fun-filled day of sport and activities. The event is open to all international students. No experience is necessary!
