2018 Commonwealth Games

2018 Commonwealth Games

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) will run between 4 - 15 April 2018. The majority of events will be held on the Gold Coast with the exception of shooting and track cycling, which will be located at Belmont and Chandler.

Redland City Council is excited to participate in the opportunities that will flow from the Games, including the economic, cultural, community and tourism opportunities they will bring to our region.

Queen's Baton Relay

The GC2018 Queen's Baton Relay (QBR) is one of the Commonwealth Games' most exciting events, which generates community awareness, pride and support for the Commonwealth Games.

The QBR takes a message from Her Majesty the Queen around the Commonwealth to the Opening Ceremony of the GC2018 and is a unique symbol of the Games with its journey connecting the 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth.

Redland City is proud to host a leg of the relay and engage the local community at the Queen's Baton Relay Cleveland Community Celebration to take place on Saturday 31 March 2018. 

This event follows the earlier celebration where more than 1500 people turned out to see the Queen's Baton arrive on North Stradbroke Island in January 2018. Read more about the event and view pictures from the event on the Redland City Council Flickr account.
