All new and upgraded venue projects are being pre-planned to meet the needs of our growing regions and brought forward to be built in time for the Games, not built for the Games.
New and upgraded facilities will be purpose designed to meet local community participation needs first and foremost, before being converted to Games competition venue mode, and then returned to the community with long-lasting benefits. A huge 10-year pipeline of development and construction is being accelerated to deliver venues and infrastructure to support our growing state.
84 per cent of venues are existing or temporary, reducing the overall cost of the Games and reducing environmental impacts.
The Brisbane 2032 venues and villages program currently includes 37 competition venues for hosting 28 Olympic and 22 Paralympic sports.

Brisbane 2032 will largely be hosted across three key zones – Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast – with some events being held in regional Queensland including Toowoomba, Townsville, Cairns and Scenic Rim, and two interstate venues in Sydney and Melbourne.
Brisbane 2032 is expected to accommodate more than 16,000 athletes and officials during the Olympic Games and around 8,000 during the Paralympic Games. All accommodation provided to athletes will be near the competition venues, with the average athlete travel time expected to be less than 20 minutes.
After the Games, three of the villages will provide new permanent dwellings for South East Queensland’s growing population within vibrant mixed-use precincts.
Brisbane 2032 athlete villages
Athletes will also be accommodated in regional and interstate hotels in Townsville, Cairns, Toowoomba, Melbourne and Sydney. Opportunities will be explored to deliver the Villages in partnership with the private sector.
