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 success of the project, Council expanded the project in 2019 to honour Australian armed forces across all wars and campaigns.
For Anzac Day 2019, Council installed commemorative badges on the following 21 streets to honour World War One and World War Two Victoria Cross recipients, and places significant to Australian Soldiers in New Guinea.
|Antill Street, Wilston||Currey Avenue, Moorooka||Cutler Avenue, Moorooka|
|Davey Street, Moorooka||Derrick Street, Moorooka||Donnelly Court, Sinnamon Park|
|Dunkirk Street, Gaythorne||Fegen Drive, Moorooka||Gratwick Street, Moorooka|
|Kibby Street, Moorooka||Kokoda Street, Darra||Markham Street, Darra|
|Maygar Street, Windsor||Nettleton Crescent, Moorooka||Ramu Street, Darra|
|Sanananda Street, Darra||Taurama Street, Gaythorne||Wanimo Street, Gaythorne|
|Wau Road, Darra||Whittle Street, Moorooka||Woodcroft Street, Bracken Ridge|
To date, 748 signs recognising 154 street names at 223 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.
