Before registering it is important to prepare your group details and organisation.

Group Registration

Group registration is the easiest way to register for ACYF. To Register as a group, simply:

  • Register as a Group Coordinator (GC).
    GC’s have supervision and care responsibilities for all in their group and are the key point of contact for their group. The GC must attend the ACYF with their group.
  • Download a Group Registration spreadsheet, filling in your group ID, all leaders and participant names, and collecting and supplying all required documentation.
  • Submit completed spreadsheet and forms as soon as possible, or by 8 September 2019.

Group registration can also be compiled entirely online by following the instruction in the system.

Group Registrations close 8 September 2019.

Individual Registrations

Individuals aged between 18-30 years can register form ACYF by completing the online registration form.

Expo Holder

Expo Holders must express interest and make a submission to be present at the ACYF. Submissions are reviewed and approved by the ACYF Steering Committee.

If approved, a registration link will be provided.

An Expo Holder prospectus will be available in early 2019.


As an initiative of the Australian Catholic Bishops and the Archdiocese of Perth, safety is the highest priority for all involved in the Festival. Registration and operational procedures set high standards and compliance is compulsory. Failure to comply or breech of any of the AACYF safety policies (including child, occupational, workplace and heath safety) will result in cancelation or removal or persons from the ACYF.
