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.

Celebrated annually on 6 June, Queensland Day is an opportunity to commemorate the state’s culture, heritage, people, places, and industry.

In celebrating Queensland Day, the community can share a sense of pride in being both Australian and a Queenslander. It is a time to reflect on how lucky we are to be part of such a wonderful and diverse state.
