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.

  • While in Brisbane encountered on the anniversary of ANZAC day. It was a big parade was a parade of veterans in Australia and New Zealand, but actually joining of various people. Could this time, watching the parade as it happens is up to super holiday and so thorough all was like a participatory event. There were no ANZAC square War Memorial and candle outlets during their stay.

  • This is a few yards from the Brisbane Central Station but very peaceful. There are various monuments in recognition of the lives lost during Wars, plenty of seating whether in the sun or shade, and is...  more »
  • Such a lovely tribute to the anzac - nice places to eat and nice place for a quick or long break to eat lunch or just relax and enjoy the sun for a moment. Shops here as well of course.

  • 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.
