On 3 February 1954 the newly crowned Queen Elizabeth II stepped ashore in Sydney, becoming the first reigning monarch to visit Australia. Australians turned out in their millions to catch a glimpse of the young Queen. She visited Australia for two months, keeping up a gruelling schedule and it is estimated that almost three-quarters of the Australian population saw the Queen at least once during the visit. From 9 - 18th March she visited Queensland and travelled to Brisbane, Bundaberg, Toowoomba, Cairns, Townsville, Mackay and Rockhampton. This set of photographs has been curated by Margaret Warren, Coordinator Discovery Services at the State Library of Queensland in celebration of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
