Statement from the Presiding Officers:

The Parliament of South Australia joins with others to mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and extends the Parliament’s sincere condolences to the Royal Family. We recognise the Royal Family’s loss, and acknowledge that this loss will be felt by South Australians and people across the world.

Her late Majesty is linked to our Parliament through our Westminster traditions, and her visit to the Parliament of South Australia in March 1954 to open a session of the 34th Parliament.

Her late Majesty will be remembered for her 70 years of outstanding service to the Commonwealth and to our State.

The flags at Parliament House will be flown at half-mast during the mourning period.  

The public can access condolence books and further information by visiting:

Hon. Terry Stephens MLC
President of the Legislative Council

Hon. Dan Cregan MP
Speaker of the House of Assembly
