Sydney will be home to a new public square with a statue named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II. Premier Dominic Perrottet said the square, to be known as Queen Elizabeth II Place, will be part of a revitalisation of Macquarie Street and will link the Domain to the city.

The plan is part of a 20-year project to revitalise that part of the city and make it more attractive to tourists.

The Premier said the square would be a reminder to future generations of the monarch’s ‘dedication, passion and service that she carried out for the people of New South Wales and Australia’.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said it was ‘an appropriate and fitting tribute’ to the Queen, who passed away on September 8.

Sydney MP Alex Greenwich also expressed his support for the project to give Sydneysiders an opportunity to reflect on the Queen’s legacy and contribution.
