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. To date, 677 signs recognising 133 street names at 202 locations across Brisbane have received special commemorative badges based on links to Australian forces.

For Anzac Day 2019, Council will be installing 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

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.
