Brisbane, Australia
to host the 2032
Olympic Games

BRISBANE, Australia is to host the 2032 Olympic Games.

The decision to award both Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to Brisbane was made on 21 July 2021 after a vote of the International Olympic Committee members at their 138th Olympic Committee Session in Tokyo.

A deciding factor in Brisbane winning the Games was the fact that much of the infrastructure required for hosting the Games was already in place in south-east Queensland, with the Gold Coast having hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2018.

Brisbane is the third Australian city to host the Olympic Games, behind Melbourne (1956) and Sydney (2000).

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the event is expected to deliver more than $8 billion in economic and social benefits across the state.

She said the Games will benefit communities, tourism operators, sporting organisations and local businesses.

Ms Palaszczuk said research by KPMG predicts that hosting the 2032 Games will deliver $8.1 billion in benefits to Queensland including a $4.6 billion economic boost to tourism and trade and $3.5 billion in social improvements such as health, volunteering and community benefits.

The 2032 Games are also expected to support 91,600 full-time equivalent jobs in Queensland and 122,900 nationally.

The 2032 Games is also expected to deliver a windfall to the private sector with billions of dollars likely to be invested in accommodation and hospitality infrastructure, property development, retail activities and services in the 10-year period leading into the Games, and post Games.

The 2032 Games will also be a boon for regional areas. Ms Palaszczuk said the Brisbane 2032 Master Plan - developed by Games partners including the state, federal and local governments - shows events being hosted across greater Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Townsville and Cairns.

Ms Palaszczuk said world class venues and facilities will leave a legacy for Queensland long after the closing ceremony concludes.
