The Memorial remembers the ANZACS and the Battle of Gallipoli and replaces the Gallipoli Fountain of Honour in Roma Street. The design is boat shaped and the steeped wall of the memorial in elevation represents the rugged terrain that was encountered by the brave Anzac soldiers who fought for freedom in World War One.

Glass mosaic tiles representing the historic cove and its waters are other features of the new memorial which includes a boulder and pebbles from Anzac Cove itself. Important elements of the old memorial such as the Anzac Forces bronze crest - the Rising Sun Badge - and the mask of Ataturk, the Turkish leader have been incorporated into the new memorial. The memorial was unveiled by the Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh on the 4th November 2008.
