Join us during the week of Remembrance Day for a free, 45-minute guided tour of Anzac Square Memorial Galleries exploring the history, traditions, and Queensland war heroes that exemplify the Anzac Spirit and underpin this important day.
We've searched through State Library's extensive military collection to bring you some of our favourite stories of courage, resilience, and sacrifice from the home front and the warfront, as we guide you on an interactive journey from the First World War to today.
Some of the stories you'll hear on this special tour include Annie Wheeler (the Mother of Queenslanders) who supported soldiers abroad during World War I; the love affair between World War II flight lieutenant and prisoner-of-war Charles Fry and his sweetheart Beryl; and the bravery of Captain Andrew Craig OAM RAN (Rtd) who was deployed to Vietnam with No. 9 Squadron.
Tours depart from the main entrance of the Anzac Square Memorial Galleries (look for the large double brass doors located beneath the Shrine of Remembrance, on the left corner of the Anzac Square parklands).
Places are limited so bookings are essential.
