Sydney will host more than 500 competitors from 18 nations with around 1000 family and friends for the eight-day event being held from 20-27 October 2018. The Games will feature competition in eleven sports with events being held across Greater Sydney, including Sydney Olympic Park and on and around Sydney Harbour.
