Discover another side of the First World War

You may be surprised to learn that 79% of Queensland adults rate their knowledge of the First World War as basic or very limited.

While the topic of the First World War can be sombre and confronting at times, it can also be quite interesting with a lot of surprising and unusual facts.

Having an interest in our military history can be easier for some than others, particularly for those of us with a personal connection to a veteran. It doesn’t matter how you connect, but it’s important to know that what we learn and share will help carry on the Anzac spirit we’re so proud of for another 100 years.
