What to do this Anzac weekend

Friday Night

Get the long weekend started by watching the Brisbane Broncos and Canterbury Bulldogs go head to head at Suncorp Stadium this Anzac Day Round. The game begins at 7:55 pm, with an Anzac round ceremony before kick-off. 


Bake Anzac biscuits

Anzac biscuits are an Australian favourite, best served warm with crisp golden edges and a chewy, oaty centre. Quick and easy to make, these biscuits are a must over the Anzac long weekend. For the story behind Anzac biscuits and the recipe, click here.

Sunday Lunch 

Moda is hosting the “O” Factor Wine Lunch on Sunday 24th April at 12:00 pm. For $145pp, you’ll receive canapés and a four-course lunch with matching wines featuring varieties that end in “O”. Head to their website to find out more and reserve your table. 

Anzac Day

Over the past couple of years, Anzac Day services have been disrupted. This year, they are back to their traditional commemorations, and we highly encourage you to attend a service to pay your respects to those who served and their families. 

The Brisbane Anzac Day Dawn Service begins at 4:28 am sharp on Monday 25th April 2022, at the Shrine of Remembrance, Anzac Square, Adelaide Street, Brisbane. You can find the 2022 Dawn Service program here.

If you’re unable to attend the dawn service, there is an Anzac Day Parade. The parade will be held from 9:45 am to 12:30 pm on Adelaide Street, between George Street and Creek Street, featuring current and former Australian Defence Force veterans and other participating groups. The Anzac Day Parade and the National Commemorative Service will also be live-streamed on ABC.

Be sure to stop by the Anzac Square Memorial Galleries, located beneath the Shrine of Remembrance. From 5:30 am to 3:00 pm, it will be open for the public to explore the exhibition or place a poppy, wreath or remembrance message in honour of those who served.

Finally, Palace Cinemas at The Barracks has an Anzac Day preview at 3:00 pm of Operation Mincemeat, set during WWII starring Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen.
