How Queenslanders are commemorating

Communities across Queensland have put the funds available through the Anzac Centenary grants programs to good use. More than 255 projects are underway or have already been completed to commemorate the role played by Queenslanders in the First World War or significant military anniversaries.

While each is unique to the region and the local community, most projects involve:

  • undertaking historical research
  • acquiring and preserving war memorabilia
  • restoring or enhancing memorials or honour boards
  • hosting commemorative activities.
