Queensland Day

Queensland Day is a celebration of Queensland’s birthday and marks the state's official separation from New South Wales as an independent colony on 6 June 1859.

On Queensland Day, 6 June, we said thanks to those Queenslanders who have helped us through one of the most challenging times—our health workers, teachers and emergency service providers, our Care Army, shop assistants and transport operators, our neighbours, family and friends.
