Location: Brisbane CBD, QLD
Client: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dedicated Memorial Queensland Incorporated
Year Completed: Town planning approval sought in October 2019
War memorial unveiled in 2021
Bennett + Bennett is delighted to have sought Town Planning approval for the first Aboriginal and Torres Strait memorial in Queensland to be proudly located in Brisbane CBD’s Anzac Square.
Anzac Square is a significant place for all Australians. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander memorial will ensure Anzac Square is inclusive by honouring the extreme sacrifice that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heroes have made for their country. The memorial will also include the first representation of a female war hero in Anzac Square.
Bennett + Bennett were introduced to the project after many years of planning, designing and community and stakeholder consultation undertaken by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dedicated Memorial Queensland Incorporated.
Our role was to guide the development application through the planning legislative framework ensuring that the years of groundwork on the memorial’s design was fully acknowledged to secure a suitable approval for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dedicated Memorial Queensland Incorporated. The key to our success was not only our expert planning skills and experience, but also assembling the right consultants for the team and a portion of sheer determination
