About Us


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
