Queen's Baton Relay in Palmerston

The 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay will be in Palmerston on Friday 2 March 2018. Nineteen Batonbearers from our community will carry the baton through our streets.

The Baton Relay will start its journey through Palmerston from Woodroffe Ave at 9.33am and will travel along Sibbald Cres, Emery Ave, Victoria Dr, Essington Ave, Temple Tce and Chung Wah Tce before arriving at its destination at 10.38am in Goyder Square. There our community celebration will be held to commemorate the Baton’s time in our city, with LIVE entertainment from Jigsaw Collective and photo opportunities with the Baton and Batonbearers.

EVENT TIME: 9.30-11am 
BATON ARRIVAL: 10.38-10.48am

Various roads will have some closures throughout the event, these can be viewed at https://www.gc2018.com/qbr#gc2018-qbr-parent-map

We encourage residents and visitors to be a part of our celebration and line the streets or come along to Goyder Square, in support of the largest multi-sport event held in Australia in the last decade.
