Civil opportunities for Commonwealth Games – REGISTER NOW 

The Commonwealth Games are coming to Victoria and will run from 17-29 March 2026, with five regional sporting hubs in Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Shepparton and Gippsland.

Games villages will be constructed in Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, and Morwell. Development Victoria is a delivery partner for the sports infrastructure required to host events, along with the Games villages.

The infrastructure created will help to leave a lasting legacy for Victorians, increasing the supply of housing across regional Victoria, and creating world-class sports facilities to strengthen regional communities and inspire the next generation of local athletes. 

This development will bring in over 1000 procurement contracts and will bring in a huge influx of jobs into regional Victoria as the villages are being built.
