Queensland Day

Queensland Day is a celebration of Queensland’s birthday and its official separation from New South Wales as an independent colony in 1859.

Commemorated annually on 6 June, Queensland Day is an important celebration of our state’s culture and heritage and an opportunity to reflect on what Queensland means to you and what makes you proud to be a Queenslander—whether it be our people, places, opportunities or lifestyle.
