ON BE­HALF OF THE Gold Coast mem­bers of Les Clefs d’or Aus­tralia, we would like to wel­come you all to the Gold Coast and the 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games. We have been wait­ing for you to ar­rive to show off our won­der­ful city and what it has to of­fer.

We say thank you to all the ath­letes from around the Com­mon­wealth for your ded­i­ca­tion and wish you ev­ery suc­cess in your time here. To the of­fi­cials, thank you for your com­mit­ment to your ser­vice and fair play. To the med­i­cal staff, team of­fi­cials and sup­port staff, we say thank you for hav­ing the teams ready for com­pe­ti­tion. And last but by no means least the thou­sands of vol­un­teers for their ser­vice to the Gold Coast.

Not only are we look­ing for­ward to the sport­ing com­pe­ti­tion but also the arts fes­ti­val that is con­nected to the Games. We hope to leave last­ing mem­o­ries of our city and hope that you will all re­turn soon.

Our aim is to cre­ate an at­mos­phere that is like hav­ing fam­ily come to stay, we look at all vis­i­tors as cousins of the Com­mon­wealth and part of the ex­tended fam­ily. We wish you all a safe and happy time here on the Gold Coast and keep an eye out for us—we are the ones with the Golden Crossed keys and are at your ser­vice.
