Sydney heads a country-wide cast in honouring the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

To commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Sydney’s Vivid light festival has taken on a royal flavor, with renowned locations surrounding the harbour lighted up in regal purple.
The seven-minute light show began at 9 p.m. on Thursday as part of a national initiative to illuminate landmarks in the United Kingdom to coincide with official celebrations.
Purple was used to decorate the Harbour Bridge, Luna Park, and the buildings around Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbour Ferries.
Until Sunday, the NSW Parliament will be lighted.
The Sydney Cricket Ground and CommBank Stadium, as well as other structures in Sydney Olympic Park, are among the other buildings and landmarks.
Government House in Sydney will be illuminated till June 13, and the public will be welcomed on June 12, the Sunday of the Queen’s birthday long weekend.
For Queenslanders to celebrate, the Brisbane Victoria Bridge was lighted purple, as was Government House in Tasmania, the Federal Parliament, and the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, to mention a few.
