Kiama included in Queen’s Baton Relay

The Queen’s Baton Relay is to pass through Kiama on Monday 5 February 2018, as part of its 230,000 kilometre journey around the Commonwealth to the Games on the Gold Coast in April.

The Queen’s Baton Relay begins at Buckingham Palace on 13 March, arriving in Australia on Christmas Day after touring the Commonwealth.

It will journey throughout Australia before arriving at the Gold Coast for the Games’ Opening Ceremony on 4 April.

The streamline 2018 Baton has a Macadamia wood and stainless steel frame, with an app used to control different settings for the LED colour illumination of its hollowed out core.

GPS technology on board will allow the Baton to be tracked online as it travels around the 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth.

“The Queen’s Baton Relay is great opportunity to show off all the iconic beauty of our town to a worldwide audience,” says Mayor Mark Honey.

“I’m also pleased that our community can nominate someone local to be one of the baton bearers.”

Details: Nominations can be at www.gc2018.com/qbr until 15 May.
