2018 Commonwealth Games
In 2018 Tamborine Mountain will be on the doorstep of one of the world’s most iconic gathering of sports people – the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. This will be the single biggest event in a decade in Australia, when many thousands of people will gather from all over the world to compete and celebrate together.
Tamborine Mountain and the Scenic Rim is celebrating this gathering as a ‘Commonwealth Community’. The Tamborine Mountain Chamber of Commerce has encouraged seventy businesses to be matched with the seventy competing countries, to become ambassadors – to learn about and identify with their chosen country and to support the athletes and their achievements. We see this as a wonderful opportunity to involve the local community in the spirit of the Games. We plan to involve community groups in activities from athletic events through to trivia nights and food events – all designed to unite our community and celebrate the Commonwealth Community.
Come visit - buy your Passport
We are printing passports for our visitors. The passport features a page for each country participating at the Games. After purchasing your $5 passport, the relevant page will be stamped at each ambassadorial business you chose to visit. This stamp will entitle you to redeem the 'special offer' from that business. Over $1,000 worth of offers will be available!
The Commonwealth Community will start in April 2017 (one year before the Games begin) and will run for the whole year before the games start. This will allow us plenty of time to get to know our Commonwealth neighbours, visitors and athletes, and make them feel welcome. Come on up and visit us and enjoy our Commonwealth Community!
