Queensland Week

Celebrate Queensland

Each year we host Queensland Week to celebrate Queensland's official separation from New South Wales.

On 6 June 1859, Queen Victoria signed the Letters Patent, authorising Queensland's separation, and confirming its status as an independent colony. This day—6 June—is now known as Queensland Day.

In 2014, Queensland Week will be held from 31 May to 8 June.
