Rainbow Families Sports Carnivals

We are super excited to announce we will be bringing a series of sports carnivals to families across NSW.

Thanks to The Heart Foundation's Active Australia Innovation Challenge we will host mini sports carnivals specifically for children in Rainbow Families. Across five locations in NSW the carnivals will provide the opportunity for families in the city as well as regional families to come together in their local area for a family fun day of facilitated sports carnival activities.

Sports carnivals will be held in the following locations:

  • Illawarra
  • Macarthur
  • Newcastle
  • Penrith
  • Sydney

The sports carnivals will be an opportunity for LGBTQ+ parents including gay dads, lesbian mums, bi barents, trans/gender diverse parents, queer parents, and parents through adoption, fostering and surrogacy to be together with their local community, while getting active with their children. 

If you would like to help out organising the sports carnivals we'd love to hear from you.

Make sure you are signed up for our newsletter to find out when the sports carnival is coming to you.
