Three months into our 2032 Olympics journey, how far have we come?


There is no denying the excitement and opportunity- that comes with being an Olympic host City – and expectations are high for Brisbane 2032. Underpinning the month-long sporting extravaganza of the Olympic and Paralympics, will be a decade long effort requiring collaboration across all three tiers of government and the private sector.

Queensland will be on the world stage, showcasing our regions, culture, communities, and there is no room for complacency. With our population expected to swell to the size of Sydney by the time the Games arrive, the countdown is well and truly on.

Brisbane needs to plan now so we successfully execute large scale infrastructure projects, ensure our CBDs are vibrant and healthy, and our regions are connected when the eyes of the world turn to South-East Queensland in 2032.

The property industry will be key to bringing the Olympic vision to life. We are the industry of city-shapers and community builders, who are committed to delivering projects that embrace local characteristics and benefit Queenslanders for the long-term – not just for 2032. With a decade-long runway, the need to work collectively has never been greater.

In addition to critical infrastructure, the CBD needs to be the jewel in our crown.

With the 2032 games to follow Los Angeles, our CBD needs to possess an atmosphere and vitality that competes with world class cities such as Paris and Los Angles. Building our own brand has never been more important.

With retailers doing it tough as a result of the ongoing effects of the pandemic, it is critical our businesses are Olympic-fit to entice the crowds of visitors that the games will bring. The overwhelming sentiment from industry is that the time is now to fire the starter’s gun to unlock the long-term gains for the state.
