Anzac Day in Queensland

Anzac Day is our national day of remembrance for Australians and New Zealanders who have served and died in conflict, and an opportunity to reflect on the many different meanings of war. Held on 25 April each year, Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli in 1915.

How did Anzac Day evolve? As a parade? As a religious service? And what key part did Queensland play in its development?

Join historians Mark Cryle and Professor Martin Crotty as they discuss the origins of Anzac Day in Queensland and how the intentions of organisers in 1916 have developed into the event we know today.

Date:   Tue 21 Apr 2015, 6:00 pm - 07:30 pm
