Remember our Anzacs 2017

On Saturday 30 September 2017, a commemorative event that coincided with Riverfire 2017 was held at the South Bank Piazza, where Queensland families were able to learn more about Australia’s involvement in First World War battles like Polygon Wood and Beersheba.

Visitors were able to write messages of support to current serving Australian men and women, see horses and riders in military uniforms from 100 years ago, and enjoy live music. Children also enjoyed Anzac-themed crafts, including badge and poppy making.

It was a family friendly day and a fun way of learning about our important military history.

Proudly presented by the Queensland Government.
