An expected announcement.

Theres speculation that HM and HRH will also visit Eastern states as well.

The length of their visit would not exceed a week I'd imagine.

Porch light on for Queen Elizabeth and Barack Obama | The Australian

Buckingham Palace has given the Australian government the message that this visit is, almost certainly, the last to Australia by the Queen, now aged 85. It will be a time of high emotion and some insiders predict a large turnout as the Australian public realises this is the final opportunity to see an icon of monarchy, one of the longest serving British sovereigns and the longest-serving Australian head of state, who first travelled to Australia in 1954, the inaugural visit by a reigning monarch to this country.

Apart from her CHOGM commitments in Perth, the Queen will travel east to visit Canberra along with some other states. The visit will be framed as "possibly" her last to Australia. This is not a commentary upon her health, just the reality of age. It is also a message of courtesy for her subjects, supporters and cheer squad.

Australian visit dates

Does anyone know where I can find an itinerary of the HRHs on their visit to Australia in October? I live in Canberra and would love to see them whilst they are here.

Australia's official coin marking The Queen's Visit [17/10/2011]

A $5 uncirculated gold coin was launched by the Royal Australian Mint today to mark the Queen's upcoming visit to Australia. It features 16 St Edward's Crowns, one for each of the Queen's visits to Australia.

Governor's bed hop for the Queen | Perth Now

The Queen is swapping bedrooms with WA Governor Malcolm McCusker and his wife for her three-night stay in Government House despite a taxpayer-funded renovation to spruce up the royal suite.

I'll be in Brisbane during the time they're here so I'll try to take lots of pictures of them in South Bank on the 24th!

She has arrived. She looked fine but she did look old. Yes I know she is 85 and for the first time I think she really looked it.

Smallish crowd of schoolchildren to greet her but limited number due to security (it was a major air force base).

I haven't seen the coverage of HM's arrival in Australia, but I do know what you mean, Iluvbertie, about her looking old. I've been noticing that she's less steady on her feet, particularly in the last couple of years.

I had just dropped my son's friend home after cricket when we saw the police motorbikes coming around the corner, we pulled over and jumped out and got to wave to Her Majesty, and wonderfully got a wave and smile back !! Wonderful.

I told my son that I was his age when the Queen came to my home town of Tamworth, so maybe 9 years old is the age to see your first real life Queen.

Now we just have plan work, school and sport around Her Majesty's travels around our beautiful city.

I read that she arrived and they are saying it going to be the last official tour by Her Majesty and Prince Phillip. Bought a tear to my eye. I know no one lives for ever but they have both always had a special place here and are much loved. I saw the Queen in Sydney years ago and it was something I will never forget. I guess it really brings home their age and they are both sadly really showing their years especially Phillip. Although for 90 he is so active he is looking more gaunt. I hope they both have a wonderful time they aren't coming my way but I will keep up to date with the news. My sister lives in Canberra so maybe she will get to see them.

She's not an adjutant and she's not the commander of the honor guard, so what is her function?

I noticed the honor guard was armed with the FN SLR rifle, is that purely a ceremonial issue now or are some reserve units still using it?

I know, this is for nerds, but I can't help it...
