Remembrance Day

Who will you stop to remember on 11 November? Explore ways to commemorate at home, work, and in person at Anzac Square.

Who will you stop to remember?

Join us on Saturday 11 November 2023 as we commemorate Remembrance Day – an important national occasion marking the anniversary of the end of World War I, and a time to honour those who have served, died, or suffered in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

The 2023 Queensland State Remembrance Day ceremony will take place around the Shrine of Remembrance from 10:15 am, and the Memorial Galleries will be open special hours from 9:30 am to 2 pm, to help you commemorate.

If you can’t join us in person, take a moment to pay your respects by pausing for one minute’s silence at 11 am, or placing a virtual poppy at Anzac Square. It’s free and helps ensure those who made the ultimate sacrifice are never forgotten.
