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 $8,000 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 encourage community participation and provide a safe 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. 

A special day was had at Barossa Bushgardens yesterday with a visit from Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia who participated in our Planting Trees for the Queen's Jubilee event. Her Excellency, along with her husband Mr Rod Bunten, were joined by guests in the glorious sunshine to mark the Platinum Jubilee (70 years of service) of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Celebrations for the day included a First Nations Smoking Ceremony and Welcome to Country performed by Ngadjuri Elder, Quenten Agius, and the unveiling of a commemorative plaque, planting of a tree and delivery of a speech by Her Excellency.
Thank you to all of our attendees for such a memorable day! This project received funding from the Australian Government’s Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program.
