Rob Mills to take centre stage at the Australian Masters Games

The Australian Masters Games is excited to announce the multi-talented Rob Mills as official ambassador of the 15th Australian Masters Games in Adelaide this October.


A born entertainer, popular singer, presenter and actor, Rob has starred on the Australian stage and screen for more than a decade. Thrown into the spotlight as a finalist of the first Australian Idol series in 2003, he hasn’t looked back since.


The now 33-year-old has enjoyed great success in the realms of musical theatre in recent years, playing Danny in the blockbuster national tour of Grease, and playing the role of Fiyero for more than 500 shows in the critically acclaimed Wicked.


It will all amount to a warm up come October however, as ‘Millsy’ takes to the court in mixed netball against what will undoubtedly be some fierce competition.

“I’ve had some tough auditions in my time, but from what I’ve heard about netball at the Australian Masters Games, I’m really going to be up against it!” laughed Mills.

“Regardless of my own performance out there, I’m just thrilled to be a part of the Games and can’t wait to get to Adelaide and enjoy a pretty unique event.”


With success comes a busy schedule and constraints on work/life balance, but Rob is always conscious of making time to get active and enjoy the social side of sport.

“A lot of roles really demand a lot from your body and a real key to being the best I can be in my career is to lead that healthy and active lifestyle on and off the stage,” said Mills.

“I always look forward to getting amongst it and having a kick of the footy with my mates or trying my luck at anything, so the Australian Masters Games seems the perfect place to be in October.”


“Sport ticks all the boxes and is a great release for me – you feel good about yourself, meet new people and have a laugh at the end of it all.”


The Australian Masters Games is a mass participation sporting event for anyone over the age of 30, attracting over 10,000 participants across 55+ sports, with the 15th edition being held in Adelaide from the 3rd to 10th October 2015.


The Australian Masters Games is proudly sponsored by the South Australian Tourism Commission through Events South Australia.
