Buchanan Park ANZAC War MemorialPrint Page Print this page

The ANZAC War Memorial and Remembrance Gardens commemorate 100 years since the landing at ANZAC Cove and those who served in World War One. The memorial was funded by the ANZAC Centenary Grants program and Moreton Bay Regional Council. 

A series of semi-circular pre-cast concrete panels, graduating in height, are arranged around an electronic eternal flame in a plinth. On ANZAC day the rising sun shines through a tall glass panel, on which is written the Ode, onto the eternal flame. The memorial is calibrated so that the rising sun each ANZAC Day casts a progressive shadow over each of the ‘battle lines’ which form a chronology of key Australian military campaigns. Nearby are flagpoles, and eleven illuminated totem poles, with campaign ribbon colours at the top, for Australia's key military campaigns and missions overseas. The concept is located amid peaceful garden surrounds.

lest we forget

(on plinth) 
They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
nor they years condemn. 

At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them.

(On concrete panels)
Panel 1:
We were all sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers,
Fathers, uncles and aunts of you all. 
We were mates with our mates, the ones we fought with
We were together for each other for our country, 
We did what we were asked and continue to do so.
We paid for what was asked, some with their lives, 
Some with their health, all with their innocence.
We fought in distant lands, in places
Whose names will forever be etched in our minds:
Gallipoli, Fromelles, Messines, Tobruk, Alamein, Kokoda, 
Kapyong, Long Tan, Iraq and Tarin Kot to name a few,
Survivors scarred in mind and body.
Lest we forget
