BRISBANE REMEMBERS FALLEN HEROES

Brisbane residents will join the rest of the country in paying a solemn tribute to the brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country at the 2022 Queensland State Remembrance Day Ceremony on Friday, November 11.

Recording a groundswell of support in recent years, especially among younger Australians, residents are invited to attend the ceremony at Brisbane’s Shrine of Remembrance.

And residents across Brisbane and the state are urged to click on the links below to find out what is going on in their areas and how they can pay their respects to our brave service men and women both past and present.

Remembrance Day marks the end of hostilities on the Western Front on the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month following the horrors of WWI.

The RSL has urged people to keep the legacy of Australia’s fallen heroes alive by going to a service, reflecting in silence, wearing a poppy, or supporting our veteran community in any way they can.

The role Brisbane and its population played in our country’s armed struggles can be explored at Anzac Square & Memorial Galleries.
