Team Australia


The 2015 Skillaroos comprises of Australia’s most dedicated and passionate young trades and skills professionals who will be competing in 26 specialised skill categories at the International Competition. Individually, each Skillaroo brings with them their own specialised knowledge and distinguished skill-set to the International Competition. However, as a team, the Skillaroos collectively share the same dream of being titled ‘World Champion’ in their chosen field and the desire to do Australia proud on the international stage.

Member Organization

Our purpose is to promote and build a skills-based culture by inspiring young Australians, celebrating skills excellence and providing them with an opportunity to showcase their trade and skill talent. We achieve this goal through competitions held on a regional, national and international level.
