Proposed Post-WWII Memorial and Exhibition Gallery | Brisbane City Council

Proposed Post-WWII Memorial and Exhibition Gallery

Post World War II and Peacekeeping Missions commemorative plaques will have their place in the restored Anzac Square memorial rooms. The former headquarters of RSL Queensland Branch, within Anzac Square, will be transformed into an Exhibition Gallery and will house all post Second World War plaques.These plaques represent the units which have served in post WWII conflicts and peace-keeping campaigns and the allies and support agencies through all conflicts.

Post-Second World War plaques will move to the proposed Post-Second World War Memorial and Exhibition Gallery, which will be upgraded to include services for future installations such as video and interactive screens.
