A city constantly evolving

What was once considered a coastal village has transformed into a thriving global centre. It is a city that embraces new industries, boasts a ‘have-a-go’ attitude and constantly goes above and beyond its potential. It is the Gold Coast and it is your host city for the 2018 Commonwealth Games – the largest event to hit the shores of Australia this decade. The event will boost the Gold Coast onto the world stage, providing the city with a global audience to promote its evolution as a worldly city.
