Anzac Square, Brisbane

4.4
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.

  • A number of memorials befitting of those who made sacrifices. Eternal flame is worth a look. Places to sit & take stock.
  • I absolutely adore ANZAC Square, especially the serenity late at night. Such a beautiful way to honour all those who sacrificed their lives during WW1 and WW2.
  • Abzas square is absolutely beautiful, and the statues are very well made, and placed. It's absolutely worth a visit for photos!
  • Peaceful space for lunch, or to pay respect to those fallen in war. Grounds and monuments are very well maintained. Busy with pedestrian traffic at peak travel times. Unfortunately the bins are removed for events due to terrorism concerns, and are not promptly replaced after the event, so can have rubbish laying around.
  • To remember my grandfather's one tanned & supplied the leather in WW 1 & 2 other grandfather wear the boots with a medal of Valor (Bravery) one of the highest medals in WW 1
