Abstract This article will investigate the potential of Brisbane as a host city for the 2028 Olympics by reviewing International Olympic Committee bid documents and literature on the success and failure of past Olympics to distil lessons for Olympic planning. Discussion will centre on the required Olympic infrastructure and supporting Olympic transport networks, as well as venue clustering to create Olympic hubs. The importance of considering post-Olympic legacy impacts is emphasised. Brisbane will be used as a case study for applying these lessons. The outcome of this process is an overall appreciation of the potential for an Olympics to have a catalytic impact on the urban landscape of a city, as well as the importance of considering and justifying the post-Olympic use of any new or upgraded infrastructure to ensure that the event leaves a positive legacy.
