Sport and Healthy Lifestyles

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) represented much more than just the promise of an unforgettable sporting event—it was also a unique opportunity to inspire our community to lead a healthier and more active lifestyle in our beautiful Queensland environment.

The Embracing 2018 Legacy Program aspires to build active, engaged and inclusive communities by motivating people to move more, value their health, and be active for life.

From fitness in local parks and halls, through grass roots clubs to elite sporting pathways, our legacy programs are supporting Queenslanders from all walks of life and abilities to find ways to be physically active and embrace a healthy lifestyle.

Legacy programs are also gearing up the sport and recreation industry to maximise on increased interest in sport and recreation in the lead up to, during and after the Games—and supporting these industries to be sustainable in the longer term.
