The Queen’s Baton Relay is coming to Wyndham!

The eyes of the Commonwealth will be on Wyndham on Tuesday 13th February, 2018 as the Baton journeys towards its final destination, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018.

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will be staged from 4-15 April 2018, with more than 6,600 athletes and team officials from 70 Commonwealth nations and territories sharing in the excitement of the Games.

Across Australia approximately 3,800 batonbearers will take part in Queen’s Baton Relay.

Batonbearers are everyday Australians who inspire others to be great. Being a Batonbearer is a unique experience and is also an opportunity to be involved in the largest event to be staged in Australia in a decade.

Nominations for batonbearers have now closed.

Nominees who progress through the judging process will be emailed in July 2017 with a request for more information so that security background checks can be completed.

Only nominees who pass the judging process will be contacted. Once the results from security background checks are returned, successful batonbearers will be contacted and a public announcement made in late October 2017.

More information on the Queen’s Baton Relay will be made available soon.
