Gymnastics in Australia is thought to have originated in the early 20th century by eastern European immigrants. It wasn't until after World War I when Australia was in the Great Depression that people started turning to organisations like the YWCA for support. From these community-based groups, the sport started to flourish. Around the same time, gymnastics was included in the school curriculum at Geelong Grammar, Wesley College and Carey Grammar. Australians participated in the sport for the first time at an Olympic Games at the Melbourne Games in Melbourne. 
The body was founded on 8 September 1949 as the Australian Gymnastic Federation. Affiliation was accepted by the Australian Olympic Federation in 1951 and by the International Federation of Gymnastics in 1954. In 1999, the AGF changed to its current name of Gymnastics Australia.
