QBR Celebration

The Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay will be hosted in Brisbane on Good Friday, 30 March 2018. There will be a free Community Celebration and major stop at Western Districts Rugby Club (65 Sylvan Road, Toowong) with the Baton estimated to arrive at 3:48pm.

The Celebration, organised by the Brisbane City Council and powered by Figs on Sylvan events, will feature entertainment, a live band and family activities from 2:30pm – 6:00pm.

Baton bearers have been chosen to recognise the achievements and aspirations of Australians from all walks of life. Among Baton bearers is local resident, Ray Crompton (participating in the Ipswich relay), Professor Ian Frazer of the University of Queensland, and many others. 

More than 3,500 baton bearers will bring the baton across the country to arrive at the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony on Wednesday 4 April 2018.

I urge the community to support our local Baton bearers and celebrate the Baton’s arrival in Toowong/Indooroopilly on the day.
