Kelly will guide us on navigating through and making the most of “Our Story”. This is an incredible resource and it’s completely free! If you haven’t use it yet, this might be your sign to get started.

Come along to our meeting at 2pm on Friday 7th June at Redcliffe Library Meeting Room and see where this journey can take you!

ANZAC Day

Opened in 1925, Anzac Memorial Avenue (as it was originally named) is the longest World War I memorial avenue in Queensland, spanning a distance of some nearly 18kms. Notably, it was the first bitumen motor road connecting Brisbane to Redcliffe. It not only serves a lasting and impressive memorial to the ANZACs but also provided valuable employment to the returned servicemen during the period of its construction.

When you travel this road, take a moment to remember the ANZACs.

LEST WE FORGET.
