National Sports Plan

The Australian Government makes a significant contribution to Australian sport, with over $357 million being invested to support sport and recreation activities and facilities in 2016-17. It is important this level of investment not only achieves value, but accurately reflects the value our society places upon sport.

Through a National Sports Plan the Government seeks to understand Australia’s expectations of the sports sector, including our shared goals for high performance sport; sporting participation; cultural and public health outcomes and our willingness to pay for these services, opportunity and success.
