Queen’s Jubilee Commemorative WalkwayPrint 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 $10,000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant trees along a walkway, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and support native wildlife.

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.  

Queen’s Jubilee Commemorative Walkway.
Josie Carew advised she was successful in the application for trees as part of the Australian Government’s Queen’s Jubilee Program. Josie met with Manager Parks & Recreation to discuss an arrangement for council to care for the trees until they are ready to be planted and water them once planted. They also discussed signage for the walking trail. The project will be renamed from 10,000 Steps to the Queen’s Jubilee Commemorative Walkway. Glenda Keating has a number of native trees and advised these could complement the commemorative walkway project. Action ongoing.
