Queensland has put forward its case for hosting the Olympic Games during the premier's visit to the International Olympic Committee headquarters.
A Queensland delegation led by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has met IOC president Thomas Bach at the committee's headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The meeting on Tuesday came as it was reported Brisbane would get a new stadium and upgraded transport links if the state gets the nod to host the 2032 Olympics.
Australian Olympic Committee President John Coates was part of the mission and called the briefing session "a successful and critical next step" in Queensland's push to host the Games.
Mr Coates said Queensland's considerations received a strong endorsement from Mr Bach and his staff.
"There's a strong recognition of Australian expertise and the considerable benefits that a Queensland Games could deliver," he said in a statement.
He added that having a united leadership at federal, state and local government sent a powerful signal, and the session in Lausanne would help strengthen Queensland's case.
Brisbane would get a new 80,000-capacity stadium, faster rail links with the state's southeast and a second highway to the Gold Coast if Queensland wins the Olympics, The Courier-Mail reported.
The delegation included federal MPs Ted O'Brien and Milton Dick, Council of Mayors South East Queensland representative Mark Jamieson and Star Entertainment chair John O'Neill.
Ms Palaszczuk is cutting short the overseas mission to return to her bushfire-ravaged state on Thursday, instead of Saturday as planned.
