In 2014, the Australian National Pool Freediving Championships was hosted by the Brisbane Freedivers from Friday the 13th of June to Sunday the 15th of June, at the Sleeman Sports Complex (Chandler, Brisbane). Athletes competed in all three pool disciplines: STA (Static), DYN (Dynamic), and DNF (Dynamic No Fins).
In addition to the AIDA competition grade (performances listed on international ranking), it was the first Australian competition to have a recreational grade. This division is designed to encourage participation from freedivers who may not feel ready for ranking events.
- Friday, 13th June — Static Apnea (STA) from 6:30pm
- Saturday, 14th June — Dynamic with Fins (DYN) in the morning,

- Sunday, 15th — Dynamic without Fins (DNF) in the morning
An award ceremony was held Sunday following the competition.
