Discover Australia’s proud military history at Brisbane’s heritage-listed Anzac Square, featuring the iconic war memorial dedicated to the men and women who participated in overseas armed services. Named in honor of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps and opened on Armistice Day in 1930, the square is the focal point of annual events marking ANZAC Day (April 25). Also featuring the Shrine of Remembrance and the Eternal Flame, this site is a peaceful sanctuary in the middle of a busy modern city. Nearby is the Shrine of Memories, with war-related statues and the Women’s War Memorial. The square’s manicured park is a popular stop for central business district workers, local picnickers, and tourists taking a breather on their journey through the city.

  • Beautiful green fields encased by buildings on all sides, this is a great shady and cool place to relax on a hot day.
  • This a beautiful location blending lush green gardens with regal sandstone monuments. A great place to pause for a moment and reflect.
  • The grass here is ridiculously green all year round, and a new exhibit was recently done up at the low end of the underpass.
  • A very picturesque setting with lots of exquisite photo opportunities.
  • Worth a look if you're walking around Brisbane. The greenest grass around?
