About Albury-Wodonga

Its official! 18 to 24 October 2025 is the date for the Victorian Carnival in Albury Wodonga.

 

Albury Wodonga, on the border of Victoria and NSW, has a long history with Victoria and the Melbourne offices. The Group Tax Section was located in Wodonga in the 70’s and 80’s whilst Albury had a regional office dealing with enquiries and processing payments. Staff were located on both sides of the border in various different buildings before becoming a branch office. The office was located in the Woolstore in central Albury and formed one of the Victorian region branch offices.   

 

Carnival Director Jon Ind said “I am passionate about the Albury Wodonga region and excited to be given the opportunity to bring the carnival to the area for the first time. The region is ideally located between Melbourne and Sydney with first class facilities. Not only that it boasts a host of other tourism hotspots such as the mountains, lakes, rivers, historical towns and wine regions just to mention a few. Together with the carnival organising committee we look forward to hosting the participants from across Australia to our region”

 

Information about the carnival can be obtained from delegates and newsletters. The website will also be progressively updated.

History

Commencing in 1949 this Sports Carnival has been held every 3 years. Carnivals have been held across Australia with each state given the opportunity to host the event.

 

The carnival is conducted for the benefit of past and present employees and their families. The carnival is a competitive sporting event with Individuals and teams competing for points across a range of sports.

The carnival whilst a competitive event it also  provides a platform for social engagement to build relationships with colleagues from other offices.

In the past each state was responsible for establishing a governing body to conduct the event. In 2021 the delegates voted for the formation of a not for profit company as the governing body for all future sports carnivals. This resulted in birth of Eighty O Inter-Office Sporting Carnival 1949 Ltd
