Kuala Lumpur becomes 'Koala' Lumpur for a day

25 October 2017

Malaysia welcomed the 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay last week on its way to the host city, Queensland’s Gold Coast.

The Games’ official mascot Borobi flew in specially from the Gold Coast and received a warm welcome in Malaysia, a nation with strong ties to the Commonwealth Games.

Tourism Australia and Tourism and Events Queensland invited key distribution partners and media to join the contingent carrying the Baton.

To showcase the Gold Coast as an active lifestyle destination, Borobi will also welcome Rimau, the mascot of Team Malaysia, to the Gold Coast as part of a unique mascot themed famil with Malaysian broadcaster Astro Arena.
