Remembrance Day SLQ

Located beneath the Shrine of Remembrance in Brisbane CBD, visitors to the Anzac Square Memorial Galleries can now delve deeper into Queensland’s military history than ever before—embarking on a free, interactive journey from the First World War to today.

Remembrance Day SLQ

Open six days a week, the Anzac Square Memorial Galleries are a great way to explore State library’s digital collection of military stories, letters, photographs and artefacts, with the friendly Visitor Services team available to answer your questions.

Visitors to the Square are also welcome to leave an enduring symbol of remembrance - such as a poppy or message inside the Anzac Square Memorial Galleries - to honour Queensland-associated battalions, regiments and other units.

Remote visitors can commemorate differently by conducting a virtual service, requesting a poppy be placed at Anzac Square on their behalf, or listening to State Library’s award-winning program of Anzac Stories using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
