The Queen`s Jubilee WalkPrint 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 an avenue of trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and encourage community engagement.

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.  

Stephen Jones MP yesterday planted a new hornbeam (Carpinus) in the garden as part of the Queen's Green Canopy Project, commemorating the Platinum Jubilee of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Stephen used the ceremonial shovel the Hon. Dame Marie Bashir AD CVO, former Governor of NSW used to plant the very first tree on the site in 2010.
