44 Isaac residents prepare to share to dream as Premier announces GC2018 Batonbearers

Forty four Isaac residents are among the list of approximately 3,800 Australians revealed by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk who will have the honour of carrying the 2018 Queen’s Baton. 

Residents will run and walk the baton across the celebration communities of Clermont, Coppabella, Moranbah and Nebo as part of its 100-day journey across the nation in the lead-up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The Premier said the list of names, selected through a community nomination program, is a great reflection of Australia.

“The lists of names have been compiled by judging panels in each state and territory, allowing local knowledge to play the greatest possible role in the selection process,” the Premier said.

“The batonbearers recognise the achievements and aspirations of Australians from all walks of life, from ambitious 10-year-olds to humble volunteers and well-known Australians from a variety of fields.

"Collectively, our batonbearers will take more than a million steps through every state and territory, sharing the excitement of GC2018 with regional and remote communities.

“There is a 90 year age range across the batonbearers, from 100 year old Bill Bruce from Nebo, to 10 year old Corbin Easton from Caloundra.

“In Queensland, there will be more than 1800 batonbearers, as the Relay travels to 83 communities over 33 days,” the Premier sad.

The Baton lands in Brisbane to start the final leg of its journey on Christmas Eve this year.

For one month during the school summer holidays, the Queen’s Baton will visit major events, iconic landmarks and children’s hospitals across the country.

The traditional relay will resume in Canberra on 25 January 2018 and will be carried by great Australians through QBR celebration communities around the country.

The Baton’s activity during the school holidays and the street-level detail through celebration communities will be revealed on 17 November.

Since its launch from Buckingham Palace on 13 March 2017, the Baton has inspired athletes and fans across Africa, the Caribbean, the Americas and Europe. Currently it is in Malaysia and is set to visit the remaining 15 Commonwealth nations in Asia and Oceania before arriving in Australia on Christmas Eve.

It will be 60 years since a Baton first carried Her Majesty’s message to athletes of the Commonwealth at the Cardiff 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Wales.

Batonbearer names and the communities that they will carry the Baton in are available at gc2018.com/qbr
