Guiding principles to Queensland Government's approach to ticketing
- There were no free of charge or discounted tickets allocated to the Queensland Government for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
- Queensland Members of Parliament and Public Servants purchased their own tickets for personal use.
- Any GC2018 tickets purchased by the Queensland Government were for official business purposes only, not for personal or recreational use.
- Any tickets set aside by GOLDOC for government purposes that were not allocated were released for public purchase (via the public ticket sales process).
- An assessment panel of the Department of Innovation, Tourism Industry Development and the Commonwealth Games and the Department of the Premier and the Cabinet reviewed and made recommendations to the Commonwealth Games Minister and Premier.
- All approved ticket allocations have been publicly declared online. The Queensland Government ticket allocation can be found here.
