Queen Elizabeth II has written a letter and sealed it in a hidden Australian vault, with strict instructions for it to be opened in 2085.

The 96-year-old monarch died on September 8, but left behind a hidden letter inside of the Queen Victoria Building, with the note said to address the people of Sydney, Australia.

What lies inside the letter is completely unknown, with strict instructions to not open it until 2085 left by the Queen, with the note appearing alongside the letter inside a glass case in the Queen Victoria Building.

Staffers, other members of the Royal Family and the people of Sydney have no idea what lies inside.

All that can be read so far are the Queen's instructions, which very clearly state when the letter is to be opened, and how it is not to be opened a moment sooner than the turn of 2085.

The note left by the Queen reads: "Greetings. On a suitable day to be selected by you in the year 2085 A.D. would you please open this envelope and convey to the citizens of SYDNEY my message to them."

The letter left by the Queen is addressed to the "Right and Honourable Lord Mayor of Sydney, Australia".

QVB was opened in 1898 and named in honour of Queen Victoria, who had celebrated her Diamond Jubilee a year earlier.

At present, the British monarch remains head of state for Australia, with King Charles III taking over from the Queen following her death.

Throughout her 70 year reign, the Queen visited Australia a number of times and was said to have developed a very personal relationship with the country, Daily Express reported.

Her Majesty had visited the country 16 times across her years on the throne, with the first visit coming in 1954, two years after she ascended the throne.

Australia voted to keep the Queen as their Head of State in 1999, with the "Yes" campaign pledging to revive their attempts to remove the monarchy as their head of state after the end of Queen Elizabeth's reign.
