Hinchinbrook Shire will be in the spotlight on Sunday 18 March 2018 as the district hosts the Queen’s Baton Relay ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Local legends are being called to carry the Baton as it journeys through the Hinchinbrook Shire. Across Australia approximately 3,800 batonbearers will be needed to share the dream of the ‘Friendly Games’ as a part of the Queen’s Baton Relay.
A community nomination program will open from Sunday March 5 2017 to 15 May 2017 and will offer residents of the Hinchinbrook Region the opportunity to become a Batonbearer and carry the Baton during the relay.
Mayor Ramon Jayo has said ‘We’re thrilled to take part in the Queens’s Baton Relay event and showcase the Hinchinbrook Region to the world. The Queen’s Baton Relay is a great opportunity to shine a light on people and places that make our community great.’
“The Batonbearer program is open to people of all abilities, who inspire others to be great. If you know a local legend that you think deserves to be a Batonbearer, whether it is a young aspiring person or someone already very accomplished, then I encourage you to nominate them to be a part of this exciting event.”
