Anzac day is one of Australiaâ€™s most significant and important national days, commemorating all Australian and New Zealand army corps who fought in the first World War. A committee was formed in 1916 to arrange and carry out the celebration of ANZAC day as a gift for the fallen, wounded and to recognise the courage of the service men. This tradition is as important today as it was in 1916.
The 2017 Brisbane ANZAC Day Parade will commence at 10:00am andÂ will assemble on George street (near Charlotte street) in the CBD. The parade will proceed through to the Cultural centre in South Brisbane.
The parade will follow the dawn service, which is held at 4:28am sharp across Brisbaneâ€™s CBD and will be a moving demonstration of what Anzac day means to Australians. With a carefully curated local committee, Brisbaneâ€™s ANZAC Day parade is a great reflection of commemorating our past diggers as well as respecting the service men and women working today.
A range of community events are on offer around Brisbane following the ANZAC Day parade. You can spend the day with friends and family reflecting, or stick to tradition, visiting your favourite pub to play two up.
