Goodness Brisbane, won’t you give it a rest? Between a plethora of new bars and (more) burger joints opening, it’s hard to catch a breath around these parts, let alone keep up with all culture you keep throwing at us!

To commemorate and pay respect to our diggers this ANZAC Day, a stunning artwork is going on display in the heart of the CBD. Pretty fitting, right?

In collaboration with the iconic Grand Central Hotel, Brisbane artist-come-architect Suzanne Bosanquet has curated a huge installation, displaying thousands of giant poppies draped over the façade of the listed building.

Created by local school kids, this 1,000+ poppy art installation will cover more than 80sqm of the Grand Central Hotel, transforming it into a spectacular red, purple and white field of poppies—purple to pay homage to service animals, white to remember those lost at war.

Positioned exactly opposite the ANZAC shrine in Brisbane’s CBD, this will be a powerful message of remembrance leading up to ANZAC Day.

The beautiful poppies will be on show from Monday, so be sure to check it out!
