Queen's Baton Relay - Wangaratta

03 5722 0888

14 Feb 2018

A once in a lifetime opportunity exists for the Wangaratta community to follow the journey of the Queens Baton as it weaves its way through Wangaratta on Wednesday 14 February, on its way to the Gold Coast for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Some 14 baton bearers will take the baton from the HP Barr Reserve, through Wangaratta’s streets to Apex Park. Community members are encouraged to line the baton route and cheer on batonbearers from 3:30pm, before joining in a huge celebration at the park.

The celebration runs from 4:00pm to 8:00pm and will include demonstrations of the various sports on offer at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, live music and more. Collectively across the country, batonbearers will take more than a million steps to bring the Baton to its final destination, the Games’ Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018.
