  • Most coveted of all was best bum award with prizes on offer for both genders 
  • Games are run by the Pilwarren nudist camp and held at Maslin Beach, Adelaide

The annual 'Nude Games' has returned in full force as hundreds of revellers stripped down to compete in a variety of events.

Around 500 participants converged on Adelaide's Maslin Beach Nude Games on Sunday for the event - featuring a range of festivities ranging from a sack race to a donut-eating competition.

The games' showpiece though was the much-awaited best bum competition, where both female and male beachgoers relished the opportunity to flaunt their derrieres.

Competitors stood in a line while collectively covering their upper halves with a sheet in order to impress the judges.

The revelry was capped off with clear blue skies and snags on the barbecue for the tired participants.

The games are run by the Pilwarren nudist camp - located inland from the South Australia state capital.

But the event isn't simply for nudists, organiser David Pillar explains, with non-nudists coming down to the state capital from much further afield to take part.

He told Daily Mail Australia participants from South Australia, interstate and even overseas made the trip to Maslin Beach for the event.

Mr Pillar added those in attendance did not necessarily need to strip off, but said they were welcome to do so once they made themselves comfortable at the idyllic swimming spot.

One reveller told Channel 7 the growing popularity of the event owed itself to people turning away from their normal lifestyle choices.

'People are bored of just going to the clubs and pubs - this is something different,' they said.

The event started in the 1980's after South Australia was declared the first state in Australia to be allowed nude beaches in 1975.

It was discontinued by old organisers Southern United Naturists in 2007 after South Australia Police and the nudist body fell-out over the authorities' decision to require all children at the event to be clothed from the waist down.

Pilwarren naturist camp, run by Mr Pillar and his wife Debbie, restarted the festivities in 2013.

  1. It’s extraordinary how there is this constant ebb-and-flow between the puritans and naturists. Essentially it comes down to you must do what I think from one (the puritans) side. There are no naturists who say everyone must be naked at all times. Great to hear this event kicking off again!
