Anzac Day in Brisbane

By George Hadgelias

On Anzac Day each year we remember all Australians who have served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. 25 April marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

The 2022 Nurses Memorial Candlelight Vigil will be held in Anzac Square, Brisbane City on Friday 22 April 2022 from 5.30-7.15pm, as a public event. This event will also be live streamed.

Light Up the Dawn – Commemorate your way

How you honour and remember those who are serving and those who have served is up to you. Take time to reflect on Anzac Day in a way that means the most to you – attend a service, bring your community together, commemorate in your own space at home, or watch or listen to a service.

Streets of Remembrance

Brisbane City Council is proud to commemorate the spirit of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) through the Streets of Remembrance project.

Since launching this unique project in 2015 to honour the Anzac Centenary, Council has placed the Australian Defence Force Rising Sun badge and the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) badge on streets which share the same names as people, places or events of historical significance to the ANZAC campaign from 1915.
