About

Anzac Square is the State War Memorial of Queensland.

Queensland’s pre-eminent war memorial

Anzac Square is dedicated to the men and women who have served their country in conflict and in peace since the 1899 Boer War. It provides a space to reflect, grieve and remember loved ones and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Located in the centre of Brisbane, the Anzac Square parklands features the Shrine of Remembrance and Eternal Flame burning at its heart. Beneath the parklands are three memorial galleries that commemorate and showcase Queensland stories from World War I, World War II, and post-1945.

Governance

Anzac Square is currently held in trust by Brisbane City Council. As such the Council take the responsibility for day-to-day management of the Shrine of Remembrance, the memorial galleries and the parklands.

Responsibility for the content curation and staffing of the Memorial Galleries has been entrusted to the State Library of Queensland.

In 2023 the Queensland government will take over as trustee of Anzac Square, to continue safeguarding Queensland’s pre-eminent State War Memorial for all generations.
