Anzac Day – 25 April – is arguably one of Australia’s most important national days. The Brisbane Anzac Day March, together with dawn vigils, memorial services and veterans reunions have been a feature of the commemoration of Anzac Day by the Citizens of Brisbane since its earliest days.
In this Centenary year, before the traditional ANZAC Day march commences, there will be a historical tribute which acknowledges all conflicts in which Australians have participated – from the Boer War to the present day. Banners, uniforms and equipment associated with each conflict will form part of this historical display which will parade down George, Adelaide and Creek Streets. The WW1 component of the tribute will include the flags of all WW1 Allies, and will be followed by tributes associated with WW11, the Korean War and so forth.
This component of the parade is distinctly separate to the traditional ANZAC march.
