Queen's Baton Relay - Tamborine Mountain, Sunday 1 April

The Scenic Rim will host the Queen’s Baton Relay on 1 April 2018 (Easter Sunday). The eyes of the Commonwealth will be on Tamborine Mountain as the venue for the final community relay leg before the Baton arrives at the Gold Coast on the final days of its journey to Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018.

To ensure the smooth running of the Queen's Baton Relay and the safety of participants and spectators, we have developed a Transport, Road and Parking Plan for the Tamborine Mountain area. Check your location on the map to see how the timings of road closures may affect you.
