The Queen in Australia documents the two-month official visit, in February and March 1954, of Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. This was her first visit to Australia and the first by a reigning monarch. The film was shot by a total of 16 cameras, documenting her visits to each state capital and many regional areas. 

In this clip, the film offers a quick glimpse at some of Australia's unusual wildlife.
