Australian Government - government partner
The Queen’s Baton Relay is the first step in building support across the Commonwealth for the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games. It will be a chance to demonstrate the spirit of unity and cooperation among all participating nations and the Australian Government is committed to ensuring as many Australians and Commonwealth nations and territories as possible get to enjoy the thrill of the baton passing through their country or town.

As part of its commitment to strengthening our relationship with Commonwealth countries and celebrating Australian society, the Australian Government is providing $15 million to fully fund the international and Australian routes of the Queen’s Baton Relay.
