Grandparents Day

Celebrate Grandparents Day on Sunday 27 October

Grandparents Day is an opportunity for Queenslanders to celebrate the many different ways grandparents enrich and strengthen families and communities.

This year’s theme ‘Grandparents — connecting us to our family and community’ highlights the foundational role grandparents play in our lives and broader society. By passing on their heritage, experience and knowledge, they provide a cornerstone for younger generations to develop a sense of identity and belonging, and to build enduring relationships with their families and communities.

For Grandparents Day 2019, take some time to reflect on the stories, insights, skills or traditions your grandparents have passed on to you and how they have helped you connect to your family and community.
