Gold Coast events

Australian City of Gold Coast (City) plays a large role in supporting events on the Gold Coast. These events benefit our economy and our community, and are an important element in the culture and overall image of our city. We are investing approximately $200 million into new and redeveloped event infrastructure to increase our ability to support major events such as the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth GamesTM – one of the largest multi-sports events in the world.
