Games come to a close at Carrara Stadium

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games is officially over, with the event coming to a close at Carrara Stadium on Sunday night.

Some of Australia’s finest performers took to the stage at the closing ceremony, including Guy Sebastian, The Veronica’s, Amy Shark, Dami Im, Ricki-Lee Coulter and Anthony Callea to name a few.

Usain Bolt surprised both athletes and spectators by showing off his DJ skills during one of the numbers, and everyone’s favourite mascot Borobi was also featured.


Some talented local kids got in on the action too, with 13-year-old Max Deffenti the official announcer for the ceremony, young dancers the Brat Pack Tappers, and 13-year-old Luke Harrison singing during the flag handover.

Birmingham showed what they will have to offer in 2022, with a performance of music, film, poetry and dance both at Carrara Stadium and live in Birmingham.

Unlike previous years, the athletes entry into the stadium was not featured during the ceremony itself, with teams entering prior to the start of the show.
