Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 September, Oakes Oval
The Lismore Aboriginal Rugby League Knockout Carnival is held for one weekend at the end of September each year.
It’s widely considered as the largest gathering of Aboriginal people in Northern NSW with over 5000 people travelling from afar to attend the four-day event.
There’s spectacular world-class tough football on field.
The Knockout however, is never just about football.
Whilst we love the high intensity of our football heroes, much of the Knockout action happens off-field with aunties, uncles, little ones and the whole mob coming together and celebrating.
The Knockout is a drug and alcohol-free event.
