Nominate for the Queen's Baton Relay

Do you know a local legend? Nominate them to take part in the Queen’s Baton Relay.

Torquay will be one of the towns included on the global Queen’s Baton Relay route in the lead up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Shire residents are invited to nominate relay participants. It could be a local sports star, a much loved local, a talented artist or a dedicated community leader.

About 3,800 batonbearers will be selected for the 100-day Australian Baton journey that visits communities in every state and territory.

The Queen’s Baton Relay starts in London on Commonwealth Day, Monday 13 March 2017. It will travel through the entire Commonwealth for 388 days and 230,000 kilometres.

The Relay will start in Australia on 25 December 2017. The specific Torquay route will be announced later this year.

Nominations for batonbearers close 15 May 2017 and will be announced in October 2017.
