Queenslanders unite to say 'thank you' this Queensland Day


This weekend Queenslanders are being encouraged to give a great big shout out to their fellow Queenslanders who have helped them through one of the greatest challenges the State has faced.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Saturday 6 June was the annual Queensland Day celebration and while the usual planned events and activities were not going ahead this year, it was the perfect opportunity to say, ‘thank you’ to those who have gone above and beyond during COVID-19.

“There’s one thing I know about Queenslanders, and that is, no matter what challenges are thrown at us, we dig in, we unite, we rally, and we come back stronger than ever,” the Premier said.

“Though COVID-19 may be one of the greatest challenges we have ever faced, we are facing it as we always do – together.

“Every single one of us played a part in helping to smash the curve over the last few months and for that we’ve got a lot to be grateful for.”

The Premier said there were many ways people could say thanks this Queensland Day.

“Whether it’s thanking family or friends, frontline health workers and emergency services personnel, teachers, Care Army volunteers, shop assistants, truck drivers or our manufacturers who swept into action to retool and make medical supplies, this Queensland Day lets show our appreciation,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“We want people to make signs, dress up or decorate their homes in maroon, post on social media or send messages of thanks.

“However you choose to celebrate, Queensland Day is an opportunity to show off your creativity, express your gratitude of our remarkable, resilient community.”

Queensland Day ideas:

  • put a sign on their letterbox, fence, front door, window or driveway thanking their fellow Queenslanders this Queensland Day.
  • dress up in our state colour – maroon – and posting a selfie to show support for Queenslanders working on the frontline.
  • send a personal thank you to a frontline worker making a difference in our community.
  • update their Facebook profile picture with the This Queensland Day, 6 June, I say #thanksQld frame to show support for frontline workers. The frame is available on https://www.facebook.com/queenslandday.
  • posting messages of thanks on social media using #qldday and #thanksQld.

The official Queensland Day website also includes shareable social tiles and decoration tools, a Queensland-themed Spotify playlist and interactive timeline of Queensland’s history.

Queensland Day is a commemoration of Queensland’s birthday and its official separation from New South Wales as an independent colony on 6 June 1859.
