Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee | 2-5 June 2022

In 1954, the newly crowned Elizabeth became the first reigning monarch to visit Australia.

Queensland was included in the itinerary and seven million people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of Her Majesty and Prince Phillip.

To acknowledge the unwavering devotion and service of Her Majesty to the Commonwealth, a series of displays and stories are being shared at Sunshine Coast museums and as on-line exhibitions.

Find these throughout June at

  • Landsborough Museum
  • Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct
  • Nambour Museum
  • Yandina Historic House and Museum
  • Heritage Library

“As I look ahead with a sense of hope and optimism to the year of my Platinum Jubilee, I am reminded of how much we can be thankful for. These last seven decades have seen extraordinary progress socially, technologically and culturally that have benefitted us all; and I am confident that the future will offer similar opportunities to us and especially to the younger generations in the United Kingdom and throughout the Commonwealth. – The Queen’s Accession Day message.”
