Queen's Baton Relay

The Queen's Baton Relay will journey through Redcliffe on 30th March, 2018 towards its final destination, the GC2018 Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. 

Local legends are being called on to represent their community’s spirit, as the Moreton Bay Region prepares to host the Queen’s Baton Relay. Across Australia approximately 3,800 Batonbearers are needed to share the dream of the ‘friendly Games’ as part of the QBR.  Anyone can nominate a person who inspires them to be great. Find out more information or nominations can be made at gc2018.com/qbr until 15 May 2017.

 About the Queen's Baton Relay 

The Queen’s Baton Relay is a Games tradition that celebrates the Commonwealth’s diversity, inspires community pride and excites people about the world-class festival of sports and culture to come.

The Queen’s Baton carries a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that calls the Commonwealth’s athletes to come together in peaceful and friendly competition.

The GC2018 Relay will be the longest and the most accessible ever, not just passing through, but spending quality time in each community it visits.

Starting on 13 March 2017 at Buckingham Palace, the Baton will travel on an epic 388-day journey through all nations and territories of the Commonwealth.

The Queen’s Baton will arrive on the Gold Coast for the XXI Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018, where Her Majesty, or a representative, will remove the message from the Baton and read it aloud to officially open the Games.
