From surfing to cycling, Australian sporting events showcase the world's best athletes competing for more than just bragging rights.
Setting the stage for internationally renowned competitions, Australia plays host to the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, the Santos Tour Downunder and, of course, the Australian Open. Looking for an event that will bring the laughs? Head to the Outback to see camel races or a boat regatta on the sand of a dried riverbed.
