As Queensland's first indoor velodrome, the Anna Meares Velodrome will host the Track Cycling competition for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. This new world-class facility will also attract elite training squads and competition events to further the development of cycling in Queensland.

German Company, Sportbau Schurmann GBH designed and built the velodrome track using their own patented design. With near 45 degree turns, the 250m track features a 'wide track' which is advantageous for the development of all styles of racing.

The 1,500-seat venue will expand to a capacity of 4,000 during games mode and is one of the first facilities in Australia to be fitted with broadcast quality LED lighting. In terms of legacy, the installation of sports flooring and netting across the infield allows for the space to accommodate multiple sports.
