The ceremonies, events and objects associated with the observance of ANZAC Day have become part of Australia’s heritage.

In 1997 the ANZAC Day Commemoration Committee of Queensland (Inc.) published a book, ANZAC Day - Traditions, Facts and Folklore to provide information for all who wished to understand more fully the history and origins of these ANZAC traditions. A revised and expanded second edition was produced in August 2000. 

Much of the information included in these publications appears in this section of our website.

Queensland schools received complimentary copies of the first edition of this book in the 1997 and 1998 ADCC ANZAC Education Packs.

To purchase your copy of ANZAC Day, Traditions, Facts and Folklore please use one of the Publications Order Forms.
