Queen Elizabeth II Platinum JubileePrint Page Print this page

The trees were planted, and a commemorative plaque unveiled, in honour of Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee and acknowledge her 70 years of service as Australia`s Head of State.

The project received funding from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and raise awareness of The Queen's Jubilee.

Elizabeth II (21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022) was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime, and was head of state of 15 realms at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the longest verified reign of any female monarch in history.  

On Friday, 18th November, federal member for Barton, Linda Burney, MP, carried out the 'Turning of the First Sod' in Vanessa Street Reserve, Beverly Hills.

Kogarah Bay Progress Association vice-president, Suzanne O'Connor welcomed Ms Burney and other guests.

"It was fantastic to attend three Queens Jubilee tree planting events at Beverly Hills, Hurstville and Marrickville," Ms Burney said. "I would like to thank the Georges River Council, Kogarah Bay Progress Association and Marrickville Golf Club for their community engagement and work to breathe more life into our green spaces."
