National Wattle Day Events in 2022 around Queensland

A bit of wattle day history

The Queensland Wattle Day League (QWDL) formed in 1912.

Highlights from the fundraising activities of QWDL include

  • A scholarship to study overseas to Daphne Mayo, who went on to sculpt the tympanum over the entry to Brisbane City Hall and the Banjo Paterson statue at Winton
  • Funding of the Hospital Orthopaedic ward for returned service men missing limbs (now part of the RB&WH)


After branching out to help people with disabilities, the League became the Not-For-Profit organisation we know well today – Open Minds. Today, Open Minds is a registered NDIS provider and charity still based in Queensland, and its purpose is enabling a positive and independent future for people living with mental illness and disabilities.

Open Minds is a proud sponsor of the Wattle Day Association Inc.

Planning is underway for walks in the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens (brisbane) in August to see the wattle blooms, tree planting at schools, morning teas and light ups’.
