You're all welcome!

In December 2014 (6th - 11th), during our beautiful coastal summer, the city of Lake Macquarie will welcome the world by hosting the International Children's Games (ICG).

The ICG is the largest multi-sport youth games in the world and a member of the International Olympic Committee. Lake Macquarie was the first Australian city to compete in the ICG and will be the first city in the Southern Hemisphere to host the games.

We are excited to be welcoming athletes, coaches, city representatives and visitors from around the world as we deliver an event that inspires young people to build cross-cultural relationships as they compete on an international stage.
