During the life of this plan, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), in April 2018 will be the largest international sporting event staged in Australia for a decade.

The theme of this Annual Plan “Our Sporting Lifestyle” reflects the city’s love of sport and the GC2018 event itself. The GC2018 and its legacy will increase international recognition of the Gold Coast as a leading sport and recreation destination.

Progress against the Annual Plan is presented on a quarterly basis to Council with an annual review published in the City’s Annual Report
