Register for the GCMC to receive access to newsworthy content and story leads about the Gold Coast and Queensland, city filming permits, bookable filming positions, workspaces, free Wi-Fi, Games-time events and media conferences, and entry to Commonwealth House.

To register for the media centre click on the adjacent links. For individual media choose 'individual registration', for media that are part of an organisation, choose 'group registration'. The process for individuals will take approximately five minutes and where relevant, the applicant may be required to provide a recent photo as well as current public liability insurance certificate, if intending to film, before submitting the application. Media that select ‘group registration’ need to be authorised on behalf of the organisation to act as the ‘Registration Liaison Officer’.
