New world-class sport venues now open
New venues for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) are open for business more than 12 months ahead of the Games and plenty of local communities are taking advantage of the new facilities.
The $40 million Coomera Indoor Sports Centre, which will host the GC2018 gymnastics competition and netball finals, opened in August this year.
The new $59 million Anna Meares Velodrome, officially opened in November, boasts an international competition standard 250-metre timber cycling track that’s designed to attract elite training squads and national and international cycling events to Queensland.
Beyond GC2018, Queenslanders will have a range of world-class facilities to undertake training, competition and recreational activities thanks to the government’s investment in permanent sport and community infrastructure.
