Hosting the preliminary rounds of the Basketball, Cairns is an Event City for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

As the heart of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics rainforest, Cairns is the place to soak up the tropical lifestyle. Experience the Great Barrier Reef and its islands, raft the white water rapids in the rainforest, step back in time with a train ride to Kuranda or treat your tastebuds to one of the many food and wine trails on the Atherton Tablelands. Whether you want to flirt with adventure or be enchanted by exotic experiences, Cairns has it all.

The preliminary rounds of the men’s and women’s Basketball competition will be held at the Cairns Convention Centre.
