Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk has reminded the State’s residents that Queensland Day, 6 June 2023 marks 164 years since the separation from NSW.

“I want Queenslanders to share on social media what they love most about their State by using #MaroonIt,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“Entrants could win vouchers for great sporting events, art, music, food, and travel experiences.”

Funded through the Queensland Day Sponsorship Program, communities across the State are expected to celebrate by lighting up landmarks in maroon and hosting Queensland Day events.

Queensland Day Ambassadors, Ali Brigginshaw, Nick Marshall, Chern’ee Sutton, Astrid Jorgensen, and Alastair MacLeod will join the celebration this year and share what they love most about the State.

Ms Palaszczuk said there were many events taking place around the State from picnics to festivals, markets and art displays.

“I also look forward to announcing our 2023 Queensland Greats on Queensland Day, honouring those Queenslanders who have significantly contributed to the development of the State,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

Mr Brigginshaw, the captain of the Brisbane Broncos rugby league team, said it wasan honour and a privilege to be a Queensland Day Ambassador and to help celebrate what it meant to be a Queenslander.

“I am proud to call Queensland home and I’m looking forward to celebrating Queensland Day with family and friends, sharing what we love about our great State,” Mr Brigginshaw said.
