Anzac Square, Brisbane
(4.4/5 based on 260+ 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. Plan your visit to Anzac Square and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Brisbane trip itinerary maker.

  • 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.
