On Sunday 11 November 2018, Queensland will commemorate the centenary anniversary of the signing of the Armistice—the historic agreement that led to the end of the First World War. There are a lot of events and activities to commemorate this special event and tributes to those who served during the First World War. One of them is "The Armistice Centenary Public Art" installation. This statewide art installation was commissioned by the Queensland Government.

This impressive art installation is expected to stand over 3m high and 16m long and contain 57, 705 poppies, one for every Queenslander who enlisted during the First World War. The Armistice Centenary Public Art installation honours our First World War servicemen and women this Remembrance Day.
The finished artwork will tour to Townsville, Mackay, Longreach, Bundaberg and Brisbane between 6 October and 11 November. You can visit the final artwork at one of the listed locations. For more information about The Armistice Centenary Public Art, please go to this website.
