Between 1914 and 1918 more than 57,700 Queenslanders served in the First World War.

From 2014 to 2018, Queensland will join the nation to commemorate 100 years since the country’s involvement in the First World War.

All Queenslanders – with or without a direct connection to the First World War – can play a role in commemorating our contribution to the First World War.

Scott Emerson, Member for Indooroopilly, encouraged community members to consider how we will serve their memory.

“The Anzac Centenary is a great opportunity for people of all ages to get involved and honour those Queenslanders who served both on the frontline and at home,” Mr Emerson said.

“I encourage everyone to learn more about our role in the First World War and its impact on our nation.

“From attending a commemorative event, visiting an exhibition, applying for a community grant, or simply sharing stories with family and friends – we can all play a role in commemorating Queensland’s contribution to the First World War.” Mr Emerson said.

From Boulia to Brisbane, organisations big and small are planning a variety of events and projects to mark the Anzac Centenary.
