This Tuesday is Anzac Day, commemorating the Australian and New Zealand defence forces’ campaign on the Gallipoli Peninsular.
Aussies and Kiwis alike gather across our communities to honour the incredible sacrifice of these brave men and women.
It’s always impressive to see both young and old taking part in the day and learning more about the history of conflicts in years gone by.
For Brisbane residents who want to pay their respects to our brave service men and women there are public services being held right across the city.
The traditional Dawn Service will be held at the Shrine of Remembrance on Anzac Day starting at 4.28am.
Following the Dawn Service, stay in town for the Anzac Day Parade. Held on Adelaide Street, between George Street and Creek Street from 9.45am, the parade features former and current ADF veterans and supporters.
You can also experience a free interactive journey from the First World War to today inside the Anzac Square Memorial Galleries. The Galleries are located underneath the Shrine of Remembrance and will be open from 5.30am to 3.00pm on Anzac Day for those wishing to explore further or place a wreath or message of remembrance.

We will remember them. Lest we forget.
