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 of $20,000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant trees along Alison Road, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of the Queen's Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and provide a habitat for native fauna.

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.  

Australian Turf Club will unveil a new garden space and host a tree-planting ceremony at Royal Randwick this Saturday in tribute to the life and service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Commonwealth Government-funded project is among special events held across Australia to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee (70 years of service) of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and following her passing earlier this year.

Member for Kingsford Smith, Matt Thistlethwaite will be among dignitaries to attend the ceremony and formally open the garden adjacent to the Main Gate entrance of Royal Randwick off Alison Road.

The ceremony comes ahead of a 10-race card at Royal Randwick on Saturday which has attracted 151 final acceptors on a Good 4 surface for the Christmas at Royal Randwick meeting.

Royal Randwick Racecourse Manager, Michael Wood gives a track report video update here on the track surface following its successful summer renovation and last Saturday’s The Ingham meeting.

Gates open for Australian Turf Club Members at 11am and General Admission customers at 11.15am, with the first race due to start at 12.20pm.
