Congratulatory Messages – Birthdays & Anniversaries

From Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash


I will send congratulatory cards to people turning 21, 60, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95 and 100 years of age and, on request, couples celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.

I can also arrange for messages of congratulations from the King and Governor-General on a 100th birthday. On request, the Prime Minister and Governor-General will write again every year and the King will write again every five years. The King sends messages to couples on their 60th and 65th wedding anniversary and every wedding anniversary thereafter.

To assist my office, messages should be requested six weeks from the date of the anniversary or birthday. Congratulatory message requests must be accompanied by either a birth/marriage certificate, scan of driver’s license or passport or a statutory declaration to the effect that you believe a birthday or anniversary is to take place on a particular day. These can be sent by post or email.
