The hub of all the action!

As an Official Partner of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, The Star was the hub of all the fun & games. We celebrated GC2018 with themed nights like Best of British and Party Pasifika, DJ sets by The Potbelleez and Havana Brown, music by The Koi Boys, fireworks and more. There were live concerts, medal-winning athlete appearances and all the sporting coverage live, large and loud! While the biggest event the Gold Coast has ever seen may be over, there are still plenty of reaons to come and play at The Star.

The Celebration Lawn

The Celebration Lawn was the place to be during GC2018! We celebrated with themed nights like Best of British, Caribbean Celebration, Party Pasifika and more. We watched as medal after medal was won, cheered on as world records were smashed, and watched the Opening and Closing Ceremonies live on the big screens. There were fireworks, superstar DJs, amazing music acts, fun & games on The Arena, prize giveaways, Facebook Live and medal-winning athlete appearances.


We had a jam-packed line up of DJs and music acts during GC2018. From DJ sets by Havana Brown, The Potbelleez, KLP and more, to music by The Koi Boys, Mitch King and Bobby Alu, the Celebration Lawn came alive with non-stop entertainment. There was live music every day in Cherry and Atrium Bar, and Dami Im, GOLD FM LIVE and Jimmy Barnes all put on show-stopping entertainment in The Theatre. While the Games have been and gone, there’s still plenty of places to kick off, or kick on at The Star.

Athlete Appearances

It was a star-studded affair during GC2018, with appearances by medal-winning athletes, celebrities and more. From past athletes like Nat Cook, Brooke Hanson and Ian Thorpe, to today’s superstars like James Roberts, Melissa Wu and Brandon Starc, The Star was the place where the athletes came to celebrate.
