Anzac Square Memorial Galleries Brisbane

Recognised as one of Australia’s most important national occasions, Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during World War I; the landing of our troops at Gallipoli, Turkey, on 25 April 1915.

Though they suffered heavy losses, and the campaign would fail to achieve its objectives, the actions of the Australian and New Zealand troops during this campaign began the ANZAC legend and saw the world stand up and take notice. To learn more, register here for a free talk on The Gallipoli campaign.

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. Those visiting in person are welcome to honour their heroes by laying a poppy or wreath inside the Memorial Galleries or in the Anzac Square parklands.

If you can’t attend in person this Anzac Day, take a moment to pay your respects by placing a virtual poppy online, or ask our friendly team to place one in the gallery of your choice. It’s free and helps ensure those who made the ultimate sacrifice are never forgotten.
