The Shrine of Remembrance is a major landmark in Brisbane. It holds cultural, architectural and historic importance and is a key component of the Queensland Heritage listed square and annually hosts ceremonies for ANZAC Day and Armistice Day.

The shrine was designed in the Greek Classic Revival style with columns built of Helidon sandstone.

The steps leading to the Shrine of Remembrance from ANZAC Square are made of Queensland granite.

Annual ANZAC Day (25th of April), a dawn memorial service is held at the Shrine of Remembrance, with wreaths laid around the 'Eternal Flame' in memory of those who died in conflict.

Additionally, there is also a memorial service held each year on Armistice Day, 11 November, where wreaths are again laid at the 'Eternal Flame'.
