brisbane olympics 2032

The 2032 Olympic Games could be a defining moment in South East Queensland’s history. Organisers hope it will leave behind an enduring legacy that benefits communities beyond Brisbane.

On Wednesday, International Olympic Committee members cast their votes to confirm Brisbane as host for the 2032 Olympics, marking an end to a long process where competing cities competed for this privilege. They heard presentations by Brisbane mayor Annastacia Palaszczuk and federal sports minister Richard Colbeck before making their decisions.

The Gabba Stadium

The Gabba is Brisbane’s premier oval sports stadium. Designed with seating capacity for 42,000, this stadium regularly hosts cricket and Australian Football League matches, as well as several redevelopment projects. Located in Woolloongabba and designed in Woolloongabba.

The new design will be more efficient, featuring improved seating for spectators and a larger roof. Furthermore, there will be an updated entrance and amenities such as retail stores – providing fans and athletes with a better overall experience.

At the 2032 Olympic Games, The Gabba will serve as the venue for multiple events including opening and closing ceremonies as well as athletics competition. The city will invest heavily to prepare for this major sporting event: renovations will improve functionality to meet Olympic standards while simultaneously stimulating economic growth by creating jobs in construction industries and supporting local economies.

The Gold Coast

TOKYO — Brisbane and Queensland were selected as hosts of the 2032 Olympics at an International Olympic Committee meeting Wednesday, marking their selection under an overhauled Olympic-host selection process designed to limit expensive bidding wars between cities.

Steven Miles, the Deputy Queensland Premier, expects the Games will set “a new standard” and leave a legacy that extends well beyond nine years. According to Miles’ forecasts, they are predicted to generate $8.1 billion in social and economic benefits for Queensland alone and an estimated total of $17.6 billion across Australia.

BOCOG may still be young, but CEO Cindy Hook already has an ambitious vision for its unique branding and visual brand strategy for the Olympic event. She plans to unveil it within months alongside research conducted by local marketing agency VMLY&R which will examine logos of previous Olympic hosts to understand what makes them distinctive.

The Sunshine Coast

Queensland government support of Brisbane’s bid has set the race towards 2032 into motion, and infrastructure spending to benefit city and region economic development and sport in particular has begun. Northshore Hamilton will become home for a 14,000 bed Olympic Village as per Olympic Committee ‘New Norms’; which have done away with costly requirements for separate purpose-built facilities for each sport competing at 2032 Olympics.

UQ Olympic experts are thrilled to be working closely with the bid team and to see Australia’s next generation of sporting heroes thrive at home. However, recent polling indicates that 60% of Queensland residents do not trust that the Games will be delivered on time and budget; despite Australia having hosted successful Olympic Games before in Sydney and Melbourne.


Northshore Hamilton is Queensland’s largest waterfront urban renewal project and an iconic waterfront destination in itself. Boasting cultural attractions, open spaces and river frontage – its transformation will soon make this place one of the must-visit spots!

Northshore is an exciting waterfront park where flavour and culture collide, inspiring bold thinkers to push boundaries and delight visitors with food, music and dance festivals, while subtropical green spaces combine everyday activity with unexpected activations activities.

Northshore Dock C is the latest major development at this site and will offer an immersive arts, entertainment and cultural experience. Expressions of interest from artists and innovators to establish new experiences within its 2,500 square metre site are now being sought.

ICON was inspired by its proximity to Brisbane River and wharf district, drawing its fluid forms and shimmering facade from their visual link with water. The towers reflect Brisbane’s pioneering maritime history by paying homage to Ernest Alexander Cullen who made Brisbane River navigable by larger vessels.
