Major sporting event venues

The Gold Coast's natural and built environment encourages residents and visitors to engage in an active lifestyle, forming a strong part of our city's culture.

Our sporting venues cater for a myriad of activities from grassroots through to elite. They were training bases to many Olympic and Paralympic teams - including boxers, rowers, cyclists and soccer teams - in the lead up to the Sydney 2000 Games. They are also key venues for major events and training camps, e.g. the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™.
