The Games

Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games in numbers. Up in lights

It’s our moment in the spotlight. Our opportunity for the Sunshine State to shine. Queenslanders can take pride in hosting the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and celebrate what’s great about our state. From sporting achievements at a global level to infrastructure we can all enjoy well before, and long after the Games have wrapped, there’s so much to be excited about.

The countdown is on…
