Queensland is turning 160!

Queensland Day 6 June 2019

16 May, 2019 –

This Queensland Day, on 6 June 2019, our state will celebrate 160 years of independence from New South Wales.

Queensland Day is an opportunity to get together and celebrate our state’s diverse culture, heritage, people, places and industry.

Schools, businesses, community organisations and sports clubs can get involved in the statewide celebrations by:

  • lighting or decorating buildings, workplaces and shopfronts maroon on 6 June
  • hosting an event in the community, at school or in your workplace using the Queensland Day toolkit. Public events can be registered on the online Queensland Day event calendar.

For more information about Queensland Day and to find out about what’s happening around the state, visit the Queensland Day website.

Happy Queensland Day!
