The Shrine of Remembrance is located in ANZAC Square, between Ann Street and Adelaide Street, in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. With its 'Eternal Flame', the Shrine is a war memorial dedicated to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzacs). Designed in the Greek Classic Revival style, the columns of the Shrine of Remembrance are built of Helidon sandstone,and the Eternal Flame is kept in a brass urn within the Shrine. The steps leading to the Shrine of Remembrance from ANZAC Square are made of Queensland granite. Each year, on ANZAC Day, on April 25, a Dawn memorial service is held at the Shrine of Remembrance, with wreaths being laid around the 'Eternal Flame' in memory of those who died in conflict. There is also a memorial service held each year on Armistice Day, November 11 and wreaths are again laid at the 'Eternal Flame'. It is appropriate that the Shrine of Remembrance was dedicated on Armistice Day, 11 November 1930. The Shrine of Remembrance also contains the World War II Shrine of Memories, with a World War I memorial sculpture on the Shrine of Memories external wall. #ANZAC #Australia #Brisbane #Day #Memorial #NewZealand #Remembrance #Shrine #Square
