The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will transform the Gold Coast and Queensland by creating benefits for our communities before, during and after the 11 days of competition. These are the benefits that this initiative will bring to Queenslanders both within the Gold Coast and across our state:

  • The commission will transform how visitors are welcomed to the Gold Coast signalling a clear marker in the physical landscape that also identifies the cultural identity of the region
  • GC2018 is a catalyst for an increased sense of inclusivity, diversity and community pride in Gold Coast and Queensland Communities.
