5 – 10 April 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$20 to AU$200

In a 50 metre pool of glistening blue water, the competition in Swimming will be hot, will be close and will be record-breaking. The Commonwealth’s best swimmers line-up ready to blast into one of four strokes – freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly. Speed and teamwork is showcased in the relays, while the medley brings out the Commonwealth’s most versatile swimmers. It’s an aquatic extravaganza as these racing machines launch into action. With streamlined technique, they cut through the water like dolphins using the power in their arms and legs to propel forward. The race is on for the lead. The crowd cheers as one. Who will be the first to touch the wall at the finish? Swimming provides the ultimate spectator experience with every seat providing a great outlook onto the aquatic action. The Gold Coast Aquatic Centre at the picturesque Southport Broadwater Parklands will host the hottest ticket in town. Swimming has been a sport at every Commonwealth Games and GC2018 will now also stage the largest para-sport program in the event’s history.
