Navigating your way during the games
Travelling between Gold Coast & Brisbane
A rail link and the Pacific Motorway (M1) connect the Gold Coast to Brisbane.
The major rail and road (M1) link Brisbane with the Gold Coast, and are going to experience increased demand and congestion leading up to and during the games as they are the major thoroughfares for spectators, commuters and visitors.
For more information on “Busiest Times on the M1” and M1 speed changes check out the Get Set for the Games website.
Beenleigh Park 'n' Ride facility
Park ‘n’ rides are free to use for GC2018 spectators and will need to be pre-booked on the GC2018 Journey Planner with the exception of Beenleigh High and Varsity Lakes Park ‘n’ Rides, which do not need to be pre-booked and are operated on a first come, first served basis.
