Grandparents Day

In Queensland, Grandparents Day is celebrated every year on the last Sunday in October. In 2024, it will be Sunday 27 October.

Grandparents Day recognises the contribution grandparents make to families, communities, and the economy.

It's a day for Queenslanders to thank grandparents for their care and support and for sharing their knowledge, experience, and traditions with younger generations.

A child’s interactions with their grandparent are often their first interactions with an older person. High quality relationships between grandparents and young people help to create and foster positive attitudes toward ageing and older people and combat ageism.

Grandparents can also be primary full-time carers for their grandchildren, safeguarding family connections. Find out more about support for grandparent carers.
