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. 

Brisbane Catchments Network Inc. 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 at 7th Brigade Park and Oxley Common, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will beautify the area and enhance 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. 

Tree Planting Postponement - due to the wet and stormy weather forecast for this weekend, we have decided to postpone our Queen’s Jubilee Commemorative planting. The event will now take place Sunday 6 November from 10 am to noon at Oxley Creek Common. See our profile for more event details. We hope to see you then.
