Gold Coast City – the host of the 2018 Commonwealth Games
If Australia is a top destination for sport, then Queensland’s Gold Coast City is the absolute summit. A natural sporting playground and one of the world’s most scenic beach cities, Gold Coast offers endless sandy vistas, a vibrant party atmosphere and in 2018 will host the Commonwealth Games in a range of new and existing world-class venues.
From 4-15 April 2018, Gold Coast’s Carrara Stadium will be the venue for athletics and the opening and closing ceremonies. Nearby Southport Broadwater will host Swimming and Diving, while Labrador will host Hockey and the brand new Coomera Indoor Sports Centre will host Netball finals and Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics.
Robina Stadium will host Rugby 7s, while squash, boxing and table tennis will be held at Oxenford. Brisbane will host the shooting and cycling. There will be four free events held during GC2018, the Road Cycling, Cycling Time Trial, the Marathon and Race Walk.
Tickets for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will go on sale in 2017. The best way to keep up-to-date with news and announcements right now is to join the 80,000 people who already follow the Games on Twitter and Facebook.
