Excitement in 2006!  

It’s WorldSkills Australia's 25th Year! There will be a lot to see and to celebrate in Melbourne.

Concurrently from 5th to the 7th May 2006, in the Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre, WorldSkills Australia will be hosting their National Competition finals – an estimated 40 skill categories under one roof. It will be their best Nationals ever presented, with the full support of the industry leaders and governments of our country.

Delegates will have the opportunity to experience the commitment and presentation, the wonderful young people and the hundreds of volunteers and staff who are the strength of WorldSkills Australia. It will be the celebration of a nation.

In March 2006, Melbourne has also been chosen to host the Commonwealth Games – the city will be overflowing with energy and celebration in early May.


 The city of Melbourne  
Picturesque, with a perfect crisp and sunny climate, Melbourne is a secure city. It is energetic, cosmopolitan and friendly. A city of 4 million people - enjoying city parks, galleries, gardens, 200 nationalities and 150 languages.

There is a long history of successfully hosting important events with a progressive and pro-business government in Melbourne. This ‘walkable’ city enjoys the largest concentration of national and international business headquarters in Australia. The city exudes vibrancy and a freedom of spirit that has nurtured both a focused global workforce and an exciting arts and cultural life.

Last year, Melbourne was not only ranked the World’s Most Livable City by the Economist Intelligence Unit in London but was also voted the World’s Best Congress City by the Association Internationale des Palais de Congres (AIPC) in 2000. Significant accolades judged from more than 130 cities worldwide.
