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 $11,472 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 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. 

A commemoration ceremony was held on Monday December 5 in front of the clubhouse for the Queen’s Jubilee Tree Planting Program. This involved four Golden Penda (Xanthostemon chrysanthus) trees. A plaque has been installed on the decorative fence overlooking these trees. This will increase community awareness and celebration of Her Majesty's Jubilee as part of a legacy of tree plantings across the nation.

The main planting is for 26 mature Moreton Bay Ash (Corymbia tessellaris) trees along the right side of the first fairway. These trees are not available until February 2023.

Up until recently, the adjacent area was a cattle property. An over 50s RV and lifestyle resort is now under construction. The trees will increase and enhance the area of tree canopy and provide a barrier along the edge of our fairway.
