Anzac Day

Commemorated annually on 25 April to mark the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand troops during WWI.

This Anzac Day, we’re shining a spotlight on Queenslanders past and present, whose stories of service collectively span more than a century and exemplify the comradeship, courage, and endurance of the Anzac Spirit.

Take a moment to pay your respects at Anzac Square Memorial Galleries—open special hours from 5:30am to 3pm on Anzac Day—or by placing a virtual poppy for our servicemen and women online.

Patrons wishing to attend the Anzac Day Dawn Service in Brisbane City are invited to gather around the Shrine of Remembrance from 3:30am for a 4:28am start.
