Memorial Galleries

Embark on an interactive journey from World War One to today inside the Anzac Square Memorial Galleries.

Curated by the State Library of Queensland, visitors to the refreshed exhibition can now delve deeper into Queensland’s war history than ever before, exploring the extraordinary true stories of courage, resilience, sacrifice and duty that underpin the Queensland war experience.


The Anzac Square Operating Deed Steering Group determines which plaques can be added to Anzac Square Memorial Galleries, based on considerations outlined in the Plaques Policy.
