The Baton

The Gold Coast 2018 Queen's Baton was designed by Queensland-based Designworks. Their inspiration for the design was the vibrant essence of Gold Coast, Queensland, its history and the people. The Baton is bright and colourful which signifies the boundless energy of the people, place and spirit of Gold Coast. The Baton sends a strong environmental message, as the materials used have been sourced locally and sustainably, with reclaimed plastic from the ocean and macadamia wood, which is native to the Gold Coast.
