About the centenary

Mateship. Courage. Duty. Resilience. Sacrifice.

The government's commitment

To make sure the proud legacy of our Anzacs was preserved for future generations, $49.3 million was committed to help share the stories of our servicemen and women and honour their memories through:

  • Building lasting legacies—including restoring the State's war memorial Anzac Square, creating the Anzac Legacy Gallery, a permanent exhibition and gallery at the Queensland Museum, and collecting and preserving Queensland’s memories of the First World War.
  • Premier's Anzac Prize—provides successful students with a place on a study tour to London and the Western Front. This important initiative is run by the Department of Education.
  • Supporting and delivering exhibitions, events, and more—including memorials, displays, commemorative rides, and performances that commemorated the Anzac Centenary.
  • Funding for community projects—assisted communities and organisations commemorate the Anzac Centenary and history in their own way.

Explore the Anzac Legacy Gallery


Now open at Queensland Museum, the new Anzac Legacy Gallery tells the fascinating story of the First World War in Queensland.

Visit Queensland Museum to discover stories, objects and journeys that trace how the war changed the face of Queensland and continues to shape our lives, a century later.
