We were very proud to host the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018). More than 6600 athletes and officials from 70 Commonwealth nations and territories took part in 11 days of competition from 4 to 15 April 2018.
GC2018 united our community, created jobs and kick-started infrastructure projects that would deliver a world-class event and leave a lasting legacy for the communities of the Gold Coast.
Our journey began in 2008, when the Gold Coast began to prepare to host the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and welcome more than 670,000 visitors.
The majority of competition for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ was held on the Gold Coast in a mix of new or upgraded, existing and temporary venues.
Hosting the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. It is an opportunity to secure positive and lasting benefits. These benefits can be realised before, during and after the event.
Transport was critical to the success of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ (GC2018). Delivering a successful transport operation for GC2018 was a significant task and required careful planning and investment.
The majority of the GC2018 expenditure budget (approximately $2 billion) related to procurement activities, offering a wide range of business opportunities for local suppliers.
