The Jubilee Trail
Looking for a way to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II this Queen's Memorial Day? Or just looking for something to do on the public holiday? A hidden gem on the Gold Coast is the Jubilee Trail - set up by the city of Gold Coast to commemorate the Queen on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee.
A celebratory challenge
Queen Elizabeth II marked her Platinum Jubilee in 2022 - the first time a British monarch had reigned for 70 years. At the time, the City of Gold Coast noted that the Queen highly valued exercise through walking and wished that celebrations of her Platinum Jubilee promote this healthy activity.
To celebrate this historic milestone, The Jubilee Walkway was officially opened on 2 June 2022, together with other Jubilee celebrations held throughout the Commonwealth.
70 bronze markers – one for each of The Queen's years as monarch – were placed in the path along the iconic Gold Coast Oceanway, linking Philip Park, Main Beach (named for Prince Philip) with Queen Elizabeth Park, Coolangatta.
While Queen Elizabeth II may have sadly passed, this Gold Coast trail is a spectacular experience that allows you to pay tribute to the Queen, while exploring the beautiful Gold Coast. If you're looking for something fun, healthy, beautiful and respectful to do this Queen's Memorial Day on the Gold Coast, this is it.
The Walkway features 20 interactive signs at key marker locations along the Oceanway. Walk, run or cycle between the markers. When you find a sign, scan the unique QR code for facts about Her Majesty's Coronation paired with stories about the local area.
