Queen's Baton Relay Queen's Baton Relay

The eyes of the Commonwealth will be on Mount Isa on March 6 2018 as the Queen’s Baton passes through on its journey to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018.

Mount Isa residents can plan their Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) experience with the street-level detail and community celebrations now available to explore.  The route for the QBR was chosen by the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Corporation and will travel through the streets of Mount Isa stopping at some of the local schools, taking a trip underground and through the Central Business District during its journey.

Roads will remain open throughout the relay, but there will be temporary (rolling) road and lane closures, changed traffic conditions and parking restrictions as the relay travels along the route.
