25 April 2018 -
The Brisbane Anzac Day Parade has it's 102nd anniversary on 25 April 2018 having been continuously commemorated from the first Anzac Day. No tickets are required to spectate this family event.
The event is held annually for the citizens of Queensland to recognise the sacrifice of those members of the Australian Defence Force who have not returned from wars and conflicts encompassing the Boer War through to modern operations and conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan.
The veterans, both retired and still serving, march to receive the thanks of the citizens of Queensland and visitors to the region as well as honour the memory of comrades who have not returned and have passed since.
The 2018 Brisbane Anzac Day Parade marks the centenary of the Armistice signed in November 1918 and the concept will recognise the contribution of service animals and a booklet; Mounts to Motors - Transport in War, will be distributed free to spectators.
The best position to view the Parade is on Adelaide Street, between George Street and Creek Street. The Parade runs between 10am and 1pm. Vehicle movement will be restricted within the Central Business District from 3am to 3pm.
