Brisbane 2032 Master Plan

The Brisbane 2032 Master Plan is focused on achieving optimal legacy outcomes over the next 20 years and beyond. The International Olympic Committee’s New Norm reforms were key to guiding the venue selection process including utlising existing and temporary infrastructure as much as possible. 84% of venues identified in the Games Master Plan are existing or temporary. This model substantially reduces the overall cost of delivering Brisbane 2032 and provides a precedent that could be replicated for other mid-sized cities around the world for future Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Competition venues

The Venue Master Plan identifies 37 competition venues required for hosting 28 Olympic and 22 Paralympic sports. The master plan comprises six new venues, eight upgraded venues and 23 existing or temporary venues.

Competition venues will be hosted in the following locations:

  • Brisbane—22 venues
  • Gold Coast—6 venues
  • Sunshine Coast—4 venues
  • Regional Queensland—3 venues (Cairns, Townsville, Toowoomba)
  • Interstate—2 venues (Sydney, Melbourne).

Venues were selected based on a rigorous technical assessment including involvement from national and international sporting federations. A range of criteria was considered including technical sporting requirements, spectator capacity and operational requirements such as transport and security. New venues were selected based on long-term demand for facilities based on population growth and existing planned infrastructure delivery programs.

Training venues

As part of the Host Candidature process, the Queensland Government undertook initial analysis to confirm there are sufficient facilities in place to meet athlete training requirements prior to and during the Games. The precise number and location of training venues will be confirmed by the Organising Committee for the Olympic Games closer to the event.
