Defending the Pacific 100 years ago

The Defending the Pacific exhibition was developed by the Queensland Government and the Queensland Museum. The exhibition celebrates the formation of the volunteer force known as the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force (AN&MEF) in August 1914. The AN&MEF, joined by volunteers from Northern Queensland was given the mission to defend Australia from military threats immediately to our north.

Defending the Pacific exhibitions, located throughout regional Queensland, will highlight the contribution to the war effort by North and Far North Queenslanders through diary excerpts, images, archives and newspaper articles.
