Games legacy

Our focus on legacy means the investments we make and the projects we build for the Commonwealth Games will continue to benefit the local community long after the Closing Ceremony.

Victoria 2026 will showcase all that regional Victoria has to offer, create local jobs, deliver a legacy of affordable and social housing and world-class sporting facilities, boost inclusion and participation, and continue to build and promote the economic and social interests of Victoria’s First Peoples.
