Artarmon, Nsw Australia (PressExposure) June 01, 2011 -- Australia's bid to secure the hosting of the 2018 Commonwealth Games was presented earlier in May by a delegation of Australian officials visiting Kuala Lumpur.
Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh, along with Gold Coast Mayor, Ron Clarke and bid boss, Mark Stockwell, led the bid delegation in an effort to sway Commonwealth Games officials to choose the Gold Coast location. The primary rival for the 2018 Games is Hambantota in Sri Lanka.
The glorious sub-tropical climate on the Gold Coast, coupled with world-class accommodation, public transport and facilities make the Gold Coast the ideal location to host such an event.
SunMore Holidays firmly believes the diverse availability of accommodation across the region offers more than enough to accommodate the increase in tourist numbers. As the Gold Coast has long been Australia's favourite holiday location, SunMore understands the unique needs of visitors to the area and specialises in helping tourists find the right accommodation. For a large event such as the Commonwealth Games, Ashraf Kamha from SunMore states that the Gold Coast should be Australia's first choice for the location.
