Come along and cheer on local legends as they carry the Queen’s Baton through Frankston City, towards its final destination, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018. The Queen’s Baton carries a message from Her Majesty The Queen through the entire Commonwealth. The Games are declared officially open when the message is read aloud.
Batonbearers are people of all abilities who inspire others to be great, showcasing their sporting achievements and community contribution to the world. The Queen’s Baton Relay will showcase our magnificent city to a national audience as it travels through Frankston City on Sunday, 11 February 2018, coinciding with the Waterfront Festival. The Waterfront Festival will remain in the same format as previous years, with some additional programming elements added in to accommodate the Relay, possibly even a visit from Borobi the unstoppable Koala which is the 2018 Commonwealth Games mascot.
