Streets of Remembrance

Brisbane City Council is proud to commemorate the spirit of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) through the Streets of Remembrance project.

Since launching this unique project in 2015 to honour the Anzac centenary, Council has placed the Australian Defence Force Rising Sun badge and the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) badge on streets which share the same names as people, places or events of historical significance to the ANZAC campaign from 1915.

Due to the continued success of the project, Council expanded the project in 2019 to honour Australian armed forces across all wars and campaigns. 

For Anzac Day 2020, Council installed commemorative badges on the following seven streets to honour World War One and World War Two Victoria Cross recipients, and Australian soldiers with ties to Queensland.

  • Chowne Street, Fig Tree Pocket
  • Gaby Street, Fig Tree Pocket
  • Hugh Street, Pinkenba
  • Jacka Street, Fig Tree Pocket
  • Keyzor Street, Fig Tree Pocket
  • Newland Street, Fig Tree Pocket
  • Sullivan Street, Fig Tree Pocket

To date, 757 signs recognising 161 street names at 230 locations across Brisbane have received special commemorative badges based on links to Australian forces.

Council, in consultation with local communities and historians, will continue to honour Australian forces and demonstrate Brisbane's community spirit through this important, ongoing project.
