    On June 11, 2022, the Queen's Birthday Parade was conducted at Government House celebrating the 96th birthday of Her Majesty in the year of her Platinum Jubilee.
     
    The Parade's 96-member Royal Guard was a historic tri-service guard comprised of Australian Navy Cadets from 11 units around NSW, Australian Army Cadets including a division from Pymble Ladies College, and Australian Air Force Cadets from three Squadrons located in Greater Sydney.

    The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrates Queen Elizabeth II; the first and longest-serving British Monarch to celebrate 70 years of service, and also the world's second longest-reigning monarch.
     
    Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC had the honour of reviewing the parade with a fly past of Royal Australian Air Force PC-21s, an apt choice of aircraft being involved in the training of pilots in the Air Force and suiting the training and development philosophies of the ADFC.
