Acting Minister for Tourism and the Commonwealth Games Grace Grace was poolside today for the announcement that the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre would host the 2018 Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Trials.

“I’m delighted the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre has been selected to host the 2018 Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Trials which will ultimately determine the make-up of the 2018 Australian Dolphins Team competing at the Games.” Minister Grace said.

“Event is supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland as part of the ‘It’s Live! in Queensland’ major events calendar.”

“Securing this event is wonderful news for Queensland and promotes the Gold Coast as a world-class sporting events destination ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. It will be a terrific curtain-raiser to the Commonwealth Games.” Minister Grace said.

Minister Grace joined Swimming Australia, GOLDOC and CGA at the upgraded event venue, which will run from February 28 to March 3.

Minister Grace said the $41 Million redevelopment of the centre was completed as part of the Games venue construction program.
