Getting to Commonwealth House

Centrally located on Kurrawa Park at Broadbeach, Commonwealth House will serve as an exclusive business hub during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

As a point of reference when planning your journey, Commonwealth House is located next door to the Kurrawa Surf Club. You may need to enter the Kurrawa Surf Club as the destination when planning your journey to and from Commonwealth House. Please visit the TRANSLink journey planner or the GC2018 journey planner to plan your route today.

Please note, there is no parking available at any 2018 Commonwealth Games Sporting venues, Trade 2018 event venues or at Commonwealth House.

Broadbeach will also host several exciting events during the Commonwealth Games. Along with the Lawn Bowls competition, the Netball Preliminary Rounds and Basketball Finals, Broadbeach will celebrate with free Festival 2018 events and accommodate the Main Media Centre.

The area will be very busy, and as a result, there will be parking restrictions and road closures in place for the duration of the Trade 2018 Program.
