Evaluation report for the Gold Coast
2018 Commonwealth Games legacy program

A legacy that stretches far beyond the Games

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), held from 4 to 15 April 2018, will provide a unique opportunity for the Gold Coast, Queensland and Australia to leave a legacy for business, industry, sporting and community groups.

The Embracing 2018 legacy program outlines how benefits will be realised for Queensland. Four aspirations will drive the delivery of benefits for our communities in the lead up to, during and after the Games:

Delivering GC2018: the inspiring Games
Enduring jobs and powering economic growth
Accelerating the Gold Coast to a world-class boutique city
Building active, engaged and inclusive communities
