Description

Queens Park is a small suburb in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia, located approximately 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) east of the Sydney central business district. Located north of Queen's Park (with an apostrophe), an urban park that forms part of the Centennial Parklands, the suburb is located in the local government area of Waverley Council. # History Queens Park takes its name from the park of the same name on its southern border. The 1st Australian Field Ambulance was raised on 24 August 1914 at Queens Park. Nearly two months were spent at the camp before the order was given to embark.Once part of Bondi Junction, the suburb's name was officially recognised in 1992 following a submission to Waverley Council by a local author Mark Roeder, and a subsequent referendum. Notwithstanding the name change, many of the longer term residents of the suburb still refer to the area as Bondi Junction. # Weather # Things to do
