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 $20,000 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 support the revegetation of the area and provide habitat for 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. 

Our community completed our Queen's Jubilee Tree Planting Day, in honour of Queen Elizabeth 11, last SATURDAY. It was well attended. This extension project is being done in partnership with our Federal member Warren Entsch's Office. Jajikal Traditional owners and the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre has also partnered with us to help out with restoring the foreshore of Jajikal, Weary Bay land and sea country. Extra community help was given by community members, Gungarde's Top End Nursery, and the Recovery Support Officer of the National Emergency Management Agency. Apologies were received from both our Federal and State members offices.
