The Anzac Square Memorial Galleries are a designated sacred and commemorative site. Food and drinks are not to be consumed inside. However, the Anzac Square parklands offer many shaded and grassed areas for picnic lunches.

Enrich your experience 

Dive deeper into your topic by combining your tour of Anzac Square Memorial Galleries with a Research Experience at the State Library of Queensland, conveniently located just a 20-minute walk across the river. Through this enriching experience, students can explore State Library’s collection, building information literacy skills, and extend their content knowledge through research. Provide your topic when booking to enable our librarians to prepare a tailored study guide for your students to use during and after their visit. While you’re here, a member of our Schools Engagement team will demonstrate how students can use State Library’s catalogue and online resources to their advantage.
