Anzac Square, Brisbane

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.

  • Just a great place to visit in the big city really relaxing plus it’s good to remember the soldiers that fought for this country and check out the eternal flame  more »
  • Located in front of the central station, Veterans Memorial Park. But shady rest on the lawn, summer doesn't feel relaxing here. That was absent from several sets. Important tourist points and going and somewhat comfortable piece of repartee.

  • Beautiful relaxing area in the heart of the city. Has lots of laying down chairs for you to have a tan also lots of cafes and restaurants if you prefer a indoor relaxation.
  • Every little bit of ANZAC Square is so beautifully understated. A finer memorial to those who served is hard to imagine. From the sandstone shrine and the eternal flame to the boab trees and date palms, it is a wonderful place to reflect.
  • A piece of history - and seriously, who gives less than five stars to a memorial... so it's not the biggest ever, Brisbane was a very small city at the time it was made. Regardless of size, it is important to our identity, and it has a place in the heart of every Brisbane resident
  • 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.
