The barricades will be dismantled for the Gallipoli Barracks Open Day at Enoggera as the Army thanks the Brisbane community for their continued support for the past years.
This family event will be guaranteed an enjoyable time for the young and old as there will be rides, stalls, and food vendors catering to everyone. The event will also be supported by music from the Australian Army Band Brisbane, with real artillery.
The Gallipoli Barracks Open Day will run from 1:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m on Sunday, July 31.
Brigadier Mick Say, the Commander of the 7th Brigade, said that the Brisbane community has an integral part of their support network amidst their various operations and exercises. This has enabled the servicemen to perform their roles to the best of their abilities in the country and overseas.
In recent crises like the bushfire, COVD-19, and flooding, personnel from the Gallipoli Barracks were deployed all over Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria.
The Gallipoli Barracks Open Day will also enable interested locals to gain insights into military service and potentially embark on a career with the Australian Army.
The event is free but tickets are required to ensure crowd control.
This is an alcohol-free event. As there is no parking available on the Barracks, the preferred method of travel is via train to Gaythorne Station.
