Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation


Throughout 2014-2018 an evolving program of Q ANZAC 100 activities will take place across Queensland.

Queensland communities will be able to reflect, learn, share stories and experiences, discover, co-create a collective Queensland memory and better understand and interpret the Queensland experiences of the First World War.

Distant Lines: Queensland voices of the First World War
