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 $7,500 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and improve community participation

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 Elizabeth's Jubilee Garden Project
In response to queries about who 'owns' the project, I'd like to reaffirm that this is a COMMUNITY PROJECT to improve the aesthetics and general vibe of Mission Beach.

When the QEJ grant application was released, C4 asked the Council for some potential sites for a community tree-planting event. CCRC suggested the junction of El Arish/Mission Beach Rd and Tully/Mission Beach Rd opposite M.A.R.C.S Park - a site which we have all recognized as needing something to be done for years because of its prime entrance location. CCRC also suggested that C4 liaise with Paul Roxby ('Rocka') from Mission Beach Nursery because of his long-standing interest in improving the look of the area. So here we are! Working together for the community.
C4 as an incorporated community organization with audited financial accounting was able to successfully apply for the funding through Bob Katter's office. Now we are asking for community hands to make this Jubilee celebration event a lasting benefit for the Mission Beach community.
C4 would like to reinforce our thanks to the following for their support and assistance - Hon. Bob Katter and his office, Mr Shane Knuth MLA, Cr Trudy Tschui, Mayor Mark Nolan and staff of CCRC as well as community businesses, service groups and community members who have or will assist to make this truly a community project.
