Anniversary and congratulatory messages

We are able to provide congratulatory and anniversary messages for qualifying anniversaries.

Australians can receive a message from the Prime Minister and the Member for Macquarie on their 50th wedding anniversary and every year after and/or their 90th birthday and every year after.

Australians can receive a message from the Governor-General, the Prime Minister and the Member for Macquarie on their 50th wedding anniversary and every year after and/or on their 100th birthday and every year after.

Australians can receive a message from The Queen, the Governor-General, the Prime Minister and the Member for Macquarie on their 60th wedding anniversary and every fifth year after, and/or their 100th birthday and every fifth year after.

If you did not receive a message from The Queen for your 60th wedding anniversary or 100th birthday you can request one for a subsequent occasion (ie: 61st wedding anniversary or 101st birthday). You do not have to wait until your 65th wedding anniversary or 105th birthday.

You will need to provide supporting documentation to confirm the details of the anniversary. You cannot do so through the below form. Our office will get in contact with you to request this documentation. Supporting documentation can include: copies of birth certificates, passports or marriage certificates; or a statutory declaration with the relevant names and anniversary dates.

Anniversary messages can be delivered directly to the recipient or to a care-of address if you want it to be a surprise.

To give the best chance of the message arriving on time, you should arrange it no later than two months before the date of the wedding/birthday anniversary. If you are unable to submit the request this early, we will do our best to process the request in time but delivery by the anniversary/birthday cannot be guaranteed.

Even if you missed the anniversary date, you can request a message up to six months after the birthday or wedding.

If you have any questions, please phone the Office of Susan Templeman MP on 1300 519 482 - we would be more than happy to help.
