Anzac Centenary 2014–2018

Mateship. Courage. Duty. Resilience. Sacrifice.

The Queensland Government's commitment

From 2014 to 2018, the Queensland Government committed $49.3 million to ensure the proud legacy of our Anzacs was preserved for future generations.

This commitment helped to share the stories of our servicemen and women and honour their memories through:

  • Building lasting legacies—including restoring Anzac Square (the State's war memorial), 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
