Anzac Square, Brisbane

(4.4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Some great architecture and statues around this area. Everyone visiting the city should walk through here. Nicely set out. Nice city views.  more »
  • A lovely kept square to remember those who gave their lives. We were touched by the eternal flame and passed through this beautiful square in awe and silence.  more »
  • it's a beautiful little spot right in the center of the city. Maybe nothing terribly exciting, but very pretty.  more »

  • Beautifully kept gardens below the level of the constantly burning fire for the Anzacs. I love the funny-looking bulbous trees and that there's plenty of benches around the perimetre and how people love sunbaking on the grass and eating their lunch there. The drawback would be that late at night, all the bums are sleeping on each of those benches which puts me off sitting on them during the day...and that the WiFi is very sketchy in this area.
  • Beautiful green fields encased by buildings on all sides, this is a great shady and cool place to relax on a hot day.
  • The grass here is ridiculously green all year round, and a new exhibit was recently done up at the low end of the underpass.
  • This a beautiful location blending lush green gardens with regal sandstone monuments. A great place to pause for a moment and reflect.
  • A very picturesque setting with lots of exquisite photo opportunities.
