Through the years, the Australian Weightlifting Federation (AWF) has hosted Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, Goodwill Games, World Championships, Commonwealth and Oceania Championships.

The Australian Weightlifting Federation (AWF) is very proud of its ability to provide excellent levels of participation and competition whilst maintaining the essence of sportsmanship and ensuring an equal field of play.

Thanks to the support of the Oceania and Commonwealth Weightlifting Federation’s, and the Arafura Games Organising Committee, the AWF in 2019 has the honor of presenting two prestigious international weightlifting events, the 2019 Arafura Games in Darwin during the period 26 – 29 April, and the Oceania & Commonwealth Masters Championships, incorporating the Pacific Rim Masters Tournament, on the Gold Coast, Queensland between 13-16 June.
