Shuttle Service: A free Golf Cart shuttle service will operate prior to the March. The pickup location is at the corner of Creek and Elizabeth Streets

Getting There: Free travel is available on all Public Transport Services for Defence Force personnel and Veterans in uniform or wearing service medals. Details are available from Translink.

Parking: Best Parking for Buggy Shuttle to Elizabeth Street is the Riverside Centre Car Park. There may be access restrictions to 123 Albert Street & 12 Creek Street car parks after 6:00am due to barrier placement for the Parade. 

For more information regarding the full Order of March, Form up Points, Marshalling areas, toilets locations, maps, security, and March Protocols; please visit the ANZAC Day Parade Brisbane website Brisbane ANZAC March Website. 

Transport Assistance: 13CABS have generously offered a Maxicab return shuttle service to transport veterans from the entrance/exit of Roma Street train station to/from the Buggy Shuttle area on Creek and Elizabeth Street junction (outside Commonwealth Bank). From the Buggy Shuttle area participants can catch the large shuttle vehicles up Elizabeth Street to either the Jeep/Buggy Loading area (rear of the Myer Centre for non-marchers) or to the junction of Elizabeth and George Streets for those marching in the Parade.

This service will run from 8:30am-1:30pm and they will have water and Anzac biscuits at Roma Street. A 13CABS representative will be on-site to answer queries and direct personnel, this is likely to be a better option than disembarking at Central Station and walking to George/William Street to form up. Dependant on take up by veterans participating in the Parade the service may be offered again in 2020

Post March Function

There is a change of venue this year for the post March function. The post March function will be held at “FRIDAYS” at the Riverside Centre Building (123 Eagle Street). FRIDAYS is located approximately one block from the fall-out point at the end of the March.

It will be exchanged for your Entry, Meal and a Drink Voucher. Pre-Purchase tickets are available for sale on our website. 

The FRIDAYS private RAEME function will be open from 1130h and the Buffet Meal will be served from  approx 1230-1430hrs on the day. Feel free to gather / sit where you are comfortable. However, the low tables against the plate glass windows at the front of the venue have been reserved for some of our older members.
