The Queen Heads To Australia For 11-Day Tour

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 19, 2011


Australia is due to welcome the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh for an 11-day royal tour that will embrace all elements of the nation.

 

The monarch’s visit is her first to the country in five years and comes ahead of her attendance at a major gathering of Commonwealth leaders in Perth.

 

The royal couple will be based for much of their time in the capital Canberra but will also travel to Melbourne and Brisbane, experiencing everything from a giant barbecue to a tram ride and a riverboat journey.
