Spirit of Sport

The Sport Australia Hall of Fame (SAHOF) was established to recognise and promote the outstanding sporting achievements of Australian athletes across all sports. This unique organisation does so to preserve and perpetuate Australia’s rich sporting life and heritage as an inspiration to all Australians.

Membership of SAHOF is limited exclusively to the top echelon of athletes. They have all achieved excellence at the highest level within their sport. Selection to the Hall of Fame by their peers is the pinnacle of achievement for Australian sportspeople.

On December 10, 1985, the 120 original members were inducted into SAHOF. Sir Donald Bradman was the first inductee and Dawn Fraser the first female inductee.

SAHOF recognises both retired and current athletes and others who have made considerable contribution to Australian sport for their sporting achievements through the presentation of the following awards:

• Athlete Member
• General Member
• Legend of Australian Sport
• The Don Award
• Team Sport Australia Award
• Spirit of Sport Award
• Hall of Fame Moments

The Spirit of Sport exhibition in the National Sports Museum introduces athletes and general members inducted into SAHOF, and honour the sportspeople who have achieved Australian sport's most prestigious honour, Legend status. 

The exhibition showcases the careers of Legends including Shane Gould, Scobie Breasley, Greg Norman and Jack Brabham among others.
