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 as part of the 100 year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, 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.
To date, 664 signs recognising 132 street names at 236 locations across Brisbane have received special commemorative badges based on links to World War One 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.
