About
Embark on an interactive journey from the First World War to today inside Anzac Square Memorial Galleries—a free exhibition curated by State Library of Queensland. Located in Brisbane CBD, with the magnificent Shrine of Remembrance and Eternal Flame burning at its heart, Anzac Square provides permanent recognition for those who have served our nation and offers a tranquil place to commemorate and reflect on their commitment, bravery, and sacrifice. Visitors to the exhibition can now enrich their experience by joining our brand-new Collection Highlights tour, departing every Wednesday at 10.30am (excluding public holidays). This free, 45-minute guided tour explores the best of State Library's military collection including the people, places and stories that underpin the Queensland war experience. Larger groups can also enjoy an exclusive, complimentary tour of the galleries, ideal for Queensland-associated battalions, regiments, and other special interest groups. Admission is free

This is a significant monument providing permanent recognition of Australian service personnel and it allows the visitor to reflect on their commitment, bravery and sacrifice. I entered from Ann Street, the imposing Shrine of Remembrance and Eternal Flame at street level then down the steps to the Square that is tastefully laid out with manicured lawns and various memorials; Korea Malaya Borneo Memorial, World War 11 Memorial, South West Pacific Campaign Memorial, Vietnam Memorial and Queensland Heroes who fell in the South African War Memorial. The Memorial Galleries are located beneath the site.

A piece of history that is now a local meeting spot. Always stays washed and adds to the city's aesthetic nicely!

We were staying at the nearby Sofitel so walked through this area often.it has been done up since our last visit many years ago and looks great. A fitting memorial to the fallen.

Brisbane offers a lot of historical paces of interest to visitors. Not only is the part itself of interest, a short walk up the tunnel to the train station reveals many more rooms dedicated to the war memorial and all it stands for.

Another piece of history lovingly maintained. I have been past this memorial on many occasions but today took the time to wander in amongst the different memorials to different theatres of war.

ANZAC Square recent renovation is completed. This square is well maintained and looks pristine.

This is heritage-listed with a war memorial to the men and women involved in overseas armed service and is in honour of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

Good spot to relax and even suitable for a picnic.

This is located near the central station, city hall and Queen Street shops. Be sure to take a look when you are nearby as there is some history and reflection here

This is a good chunk of history to view - and I particularly liked the arcade which branches off from here and goes to the war museum

A fantastic memorial to our military of all wars. Quiet, peaceful, surrounded by gardens and statues bringing home the sacrifice so many made.
