Queensland Day 2022
Queensland Day is a celebration of Queensland’s birthday and its official separation from New South Wales as an independent colony on 6 June 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.
This June, we also celebrate another historic milestone—the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second. Her Majesty is the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.
There will be many events and activities commemorating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Australia and across the Commonwealth. Events and activities will take place from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022 to acknowledge this significant anniversary.
