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:

  • GC2018 showcases legacy opportunities for future host cities.
  • GC2018 is a catalyst for an increased sense of inclusivity, diversity and community pride in Gold Coast and Queensland communities
