“Celebrate the Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games as it travels through Brisbane. The QBR is a Commonwealth Games tradition that celebrates the Commonwealth’s diversity, inspires community pride and excites people about the world-class festival of sports and culture to come. The QBR will be hosted in Brisbane on Good Friday (Friday 30th March 2018) and Easter Saturday (Saturday 31st March 2018). The baton will travel from Sandgate to Sherwood on Good Friday, with Western Districts Rugby Club (powered by Figs on Sylvan events) being a major stop at 3:48pm. This is a free community event from 2:30pm – 6pm. Please get here early to allow for road closures and utilize public transport such as the Toowong Train Station & City Cat “Regatta Stop”.
All in the community will have a chance to see the baton and engage with baton bearers. The Toowong community celebration is hosted with Figs on Sylvan Events at the Western Districts Rugby Union Club. This FREE event will feature live music, giant games, a jumping castle, footy toss, sports demonstrations, kids relay races and festival food. You can also test your skills in the inflatable basketball shootout or the 30 metre extreme obstacle course. Be part of the excitement when the batonbearer Simon Newcomb OAM arrives onsite with the Queen’s Baton estimated at 3.48pm. Note – the event program may be subject to change.
As this is a community celebration, entry will be free for all & encouraged for as many people as possible to attend the event. The field will be full of family fun style games and a band for entertainment on the day.
