2015 is the 100 year anniversary of the ANZAC Landings at Gallipoli and this commemoration is part of the larger four years (2014-2018) commemoration of World War I. In the foyer of the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital there is a fascinating exhibition celebrating the role of Brisbane doctors and nurses in the Great War.
The exhibition consists of large information boards outlining information about the involvement of the Brisbane Hospital (as it then was) and its staff with the Great War.

It provides fascinating information about the war service of a number of medical personnel including Dr John Barr McLean and Grace Wilson.

There are also a range of personnel effects on display.
The exhibition is well worth a visit and is very handy if you happen to need to go to the hospital anyway. Otherwise you can park in the hospital car park or nearby at Downey Park. The hospital is also accessible by Bus and train.
