Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Print 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. 

Rosebud Park & Recreation Reserve Committee of Management Incorporated received funding of $7,500 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant a corridor of trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy, improve community wellbeing 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.

On Monday December 19th, Rosebud Park Recreation Reserve’s Committee of Management (CoM) along with Zoe McKenzie (Federal Member for Flinders) and Victoria’s Commissioner for the Environment Dr. Gillian Sparkes participated in a Queen’s Jubilee Commemorative Tree Planting Event.

The tree planting took place in the Rosebud Park & Recreation Reserve (adjoining Bay Views Golf Course) following a successful grant application from the CoM who independently manage the parkland.
The 'Jubilee Biodiversity Corridor Project' will see more than 200 trees planted in an area extending from Arthurs Seat State Park through to urban areas on the perimeter of Rosebud Park and aims to connect and preserve the habitats of native koalas, and other fauna.
