Volunteering is a fantastic way to enjoy the Commonwealth Games activities in Cairns in 2018.

Celebrations commence with the Queens Baton Relay, as the Relay visits Cairns on 16 and 17 March. Our volunteers will work alongside organisers, ensuring a fun and safe passage of the iconic Baton, as it passes through the Cairns region on its way to the opening ceremony in the Gold Coast.

Cairns will host the preliminary rounds of the Basketball from 4 – 15 April with fans expected to attend the event from afar.  Our City Meet and Greeting team will provide volunteers with the opportunity to meet new people from around the world and assist visitors with information and advice on our region.

Entertainment won’t just be confined to the sporting arena during GC2018. The Festival 2018 arts and cultural program will be a bold, aspirational 12-day program throughout Cairns that will feature extraordinary and memorable artistic events that celebrate the spirit of the Commonwealth and showcase Cairns’  lifestyle, culture and creativity.  Volunteers at Festival 2018 gives will receive a front-row seat to this exciting program.

Thank you to all our volunteers for putting up their hand - you will make these Commonwealth Games one to remember.
