It all started in 2009 when …

a couple of mates from Stockholm’s Solna Axemen Aussie Footy Team decided to celebrate being Australian in late January in the dead of a Swedish winter with a day long series of Australian sporting events. This started a decade long-run of the Australia Day Games played by a small group of Aussie & Allies Expats & Repats around the world.

In 2021 for the first time the ADay Games were held down under. Mask-free under the blistering Australian sun, we thought of all our mates still OS battling through the depressing cold dark covid-quarantine winter to the North. We decided to create a source of hope for Aussie & Allies Expats & Repats to help our mates doing it tough OS & send them what they need to host some ADay Games throughout the year on any given saturday.

It’s just a little bit of fun and we hope that this might help the mental health of our mates away from home, OS and Interstate. We know first-hand how tough it is being far from home and we want to let our Expats & Repats know that you’re not alone & it’s only a matter of time until we all catch-up in-person at the next Australia Day Games!


An average sportsman in traditional Australian sports, so in true Australian style he invented a couple that no one else plays, enter the "Shark Toss" event. 


Still undecided if banana bending should be introduced into the A-Day Games, as a proud Queenslander he decided to return to Australia and live in Sydney.

I'm not always at the top of my game, but the day i dressed like Lillee and threw a shark: i was pretty closeJoe L.
