Queensland Government

The Queensland Olympic Council would like to both acknowledge and thank the Queensland Government for their ongoing support and commitment to the Olympic movement in Queensland.

Areas of Support:

Australian Olympic Team

The Queensland Government, through the Premier of Queensland, contributed $400,000 towards the 2012 Australian Olympic Team fundraising. These funds directly assisted the Teams preparation and participation in the London Olympic Games.

In 2013, the Queensland Premier, Hon. Campbell Newman, confirmed his government's continuing support of the Australian Olympic Team with his announcement of a $500,000 donation towards the 2016 Team Fund.
