Opening Ceremony

A favourite component in the Australian Deaf Games, the Opening Ceremony will deliver a grand kick-start to the Games. It is the place where we can join in readiness for seven days of competition and fun in sport. It is the place where we greet and support our athletes in the traditional Athletes Parade. It is the place where Australians and our Pacific friends unite in Deaf sports and Deaf culture. It is simply, the place to be – not to be missed!
