We’ll be closed for two upcoming public holidays
Following the recent passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has declared a one-off public holiday to commemorate her ‘remarkable life and dedication to service’.
The National Day of Mourning for Her Majesty the Queen is on Thursday 22 September. A National Memorial Service will be held at 11am in the Great Hall of Australian Parliament House in Canberra and will begin with one minute’s silence. It will be broadcast live across the nation.
During her reign, the Queen visited Australia 16 times and was the patron of more than 20 Australian charities and associations. Leave a message of condolence and read more about her deep connection to Australia.
