Michael Hart said the Queensland Government was encouraging Queenslanders to hold their own Diamond Jubilee celebration with neighbours, friends or their local community.
 

“In honour of the Queens’s Diamond Jubilee, Queenslanders have been given a one-off public holiday on Monday 11 June,” he said.

“This is the perfect opportunity for locals to hold their own parties to celebrate and commemorate this very special event.

 

 “Big Jubilee Party events can be traditional street parties, high teas or a picnic lunch – big or small.

“Everyone can enter the details of their Big Jubilee Party to go into the draw to win fantastic prizes, including a trip for four to London, thanks to Qantas.

 

“The first 50 events to enter will also receive a free Diamond Jubilee merchandise pack.”

Queensland primary school students are also being invited to join the celebrations by designing a menu ‘fit for a Queen’ as part of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee school competition. Teachers can register to receive a competition pack for their class.

The Big Jubilee Party, part of Queensland Week 2012, is coordinated by the Queensland Government and proudly supported by Network Ten, The Courier Mail, 4KQ, 97.3FM and Qantas.

The Queen is only the second British monarch to have reached a 60-year reign after her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 1897.

 

Our state was named in honour of Queen Victoria who, in 1859, signed the Letters Patent which declared Queensland would be a separate colony from New South Wales.
