About Gallipoli to Armistice Memorial

The Gallipoli to Armistice Memorial traces the birth of the Anzac legend, drawn from the personal perspectives in letters written home to loved ones by Wide Bay district men who fought on the front line, including Lieutenant Duncan Chapman, the first Anzac ashore at Gallipoli.

Soaring eight meters into the sky is a steel representation of the cliffs of Gallipoli, leading to panels telling the story of the battles. From there, visitors follow inscribed pavers to the Western Front battlegrounds, past sculptures and whispering voices to an arbour dedicated to the pitiless Battle of Pozieres

The all-abilities Gallipoli to Armistice memorial is free to visit and appeals to all ages. Its path wends through pretty, peaceful Queen’s Park in stark contrast to the relentless shelling, mud, and bloody carnage of World War I.
