Sport 2030 – National Sport Plan
The Australian Government has a clear and bold vision for sport in Australia — to ensure we are the world’s most active and healthy sporting nation, known for our integrity and sporting success.
Sport 2030 has four key priority areas which will, when fully implemented, create a platform for sporting success through to 2030 and beyond.
The priorities are:
Build a more active Australia - More Australians, more active, more often;
Achieving sporting excellence - National pride, inspiration and motivation through international sporting success;
Safeguarding the integrity of sport - A fair, safe and strong sport sector free from corruption; and
Strengthening Australia’s sport industry - A thriving Australian sport and recreation industry.
Sport 2030 brings together the knowledge and insight of many people from across the sporting sector and the general public who provided submissions, attended consultation sessions and contributed ideas.
