Monument
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.

  • Gorgeous little slice of green in the middle of the city. Great place to meet for lunch and just reset and slow down from the hectic pace of the city. Beautifull and well kept plaques, memorials and eternal flame to remind us to never forget.
  • A good place to relax or meet friends in the heart of CBD and a short walk from Central Station.
  • Beautiful area with statues commemorating Anzacs and nice places to sit in the sun and enjoy
  • Lovely area to have lunch and chill out in the heart of the city.
  • Excellent open space and accompanying choice of eateries is good
