A brief Visit on Friday 17/01/20 around Anzac Square, the garden area being extremely well maintained. This location in the middle of the city is defiantly worth visiting. Unfortunately we didn't have much time to go inside the galleries.

As an Australian this is a very touching place. Especially when you’re around the eternal flame. If you can walk around the exhibits while listening to Redgum’s “I was only 19” an extra emotional song about veterans of Vietnam who returned wounded and with ptsd. That discusses the events that occurred to these men, as well as their lives after it.

If you want to go somewhere to find out the history of the 1st and 2nd world wars and other conflicts then this is the place in Brisbane. We didn't get a chance to visit the Anzac Square memorial museum.

We did visit the grounds and take in all of the monuments (see the pics), very thoughtfully done and lovely gardens.

Difficult to rate under 5 any ANZAC memorial space yet this measures true.
Spectacular space, stone architecture and stirring information & plaques.
Near heart of city, reminding daily commuters the sacrifice past for present freedom.

Last time I visited Brisbane Anzac Square was under renovation and looking quite untidy.

The renovations are now complete with the lawn and surrounds looking great.

It is of great historical significance and is a heritage-listed town square and war memorial.

ANZAC Square recent renovation is completed. This square is well maintained and looks pristine.

This is heritage-listed with a war memorial to the men and women involved in overseas armed service and is in honour of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

Good spot to relax and even suitable for a picnic.

As I had been reading the book "Deception Bay" about 1940s Brisbane this landmark featured describing it as a congregating point for soldiers who also barbequed sausages on the flame; such was the desperation in those times. Its a good book, gotta say!

A fantastic memorial to our military of all wars. Quiet, peaceful, surrounded by gardens and statues bringing home the sacrifice so many made.
