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 $6,000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant native trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will provide habitat and food sources for koalas and other 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.  

Iona College Eucalyptus Plantation -
Today, on this beautiful crisp last day of Winter, we marked the opening of the Iona College Eucalyptus Plantation with the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and the ceremonial planting of five very special trees. These trees have been planted to represent the many contributors that have partnered together to bring this project to life.

An additional 200 seedlings were planted, with a further 300 to follow in the coming days. We look forward to sharing in the joy of watching this plantation grow and be of service to our community.
