The Anzac Centenary provides an opportunity for Queenslanders to reflect on how war has shaped our nation—from the beaches of Gallipoli to the deserts of Afghanistan.
The Queensland Government has initiated and funded three key projects to provide a lasting legacy to Queenslanders beyond 2018 and into the next century of service. These projects will be delivered in partnership with the State Library of Queensland, Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Museum. Explore each project in depth below.
State Library of Queensland
Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation
Over a four-year project period, the State Library of Queensland will uncover new Queensland stories and treasures, and generate insights and experiences that honour the enduring Anzac spirit.
Brisbane City Council
Anzac Square restoration and enhancement
Anzac Square, located in the heart of Brisbane, is to be fully refurbished. Significant restoration works are required to mitigate important issues with water ingress into the facility, and to renovate this significant and much loved memorial.
Anzac Legacy Gallery
The Queensland Museum will develop a new, permanent gallery dedicated to the Anzac tradition. At the heart of the Anzac Legacy Gallery will be an experiential encounter with one of Australia’s, and the world’s, most significant war relics—the A7V Sturmpanzerwagen armoured assault vehicle, 'Mephisto'.
