Toowoomba City Hall flags at half-mast

We pause today to mark the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

After learning of her passing overnight, Toowoomba Regional Council’s Mayor Paul Antonio said Her Majesty would forever be remembered as an incredible leader of the Commonwealth.

“She was a remarkable woman who left behind an amazing legacy that will be remembered forever,” Mayor Antonio said.

“Some residents will still remember with fondness the Queen and Prince Philip’s visit to Toowoomba in 1954.

“After taking reign at such an early age, she forged strong partnerships throughout the world that remain beneficial to us today.

“She was a strong and courageous woman who led with dignity and inspired many of us to be better leaders.

“Her strength of character always prevailed and with her passing there is no doubt we will miss her calming influence.

“Our condolences are with her family at this time and as a sign of mourning and respect our flags will fly at half-mast to remember this incredible woman.”
