The 1956 Summer Olympics were held in Melbourne from November 22 1956 to December 08 1956.

The games of the XVI Olympiad consisted of 145 events.

Due to tough quarantine laws in Australia foreign horses were not permitted to enter so the equestrian events were held in Stockholm, Sweden in June 1956.
