Queen Elizabeth's Visit to Australia

Queen Elizabeth II arrived in Sydney on February 3 in 1954 for a two-month visit. The Queen had a special place in her heart for Australia and visited the country 16 times. During her visits she was welcomed by cheering crowds in every part of the country. Some of her visits however were manned with controversy.

"These visits have also drawn protest and debate over Australia's constitutional position," Dr Cindy McCreery, an expert on the British monarchy in the University of Sydney's Department of History says. In 1999, Australia held a referendum on whether to remove the Queen as head of state, but it was defeated, reported CNN.
