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 $20,0000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant a corridor of trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will beautify the area and enhance the tree canopy.

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.  

Penrith City Council has honoured the Queen’s 70 years of service to Australia and the Commonwealth by planting 28 new trees in Robinson Park, Jamisontown.

A commemorative event was held at the park this week, with dignitaries including Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen, Federal Member for Lindsay Melissa McIntosh, and school captains from nearby Jamisontown Public School helping to plant the first few trees.

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said the tree planting was a fitting legacy of Her Majesty’s lifetime of service. “Her Majesty reigned as Queen for over 70 years, making her our longest-serving monarch,” Mayr Hitchen said. “These trees will serve as a reminder of her dedication to Australia and will also enhance the shade canopy of the park, ensuring it can be enjoyed by the community throughout the year.”

The project received funding from the Australian Government’s Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program.
