The annual ANZAC Day: Lest We Forget exhibition, currently on display at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum, is an opportunity for locals and visitors to pay their respects to those Australian men and women who have served during war time.


This year, Lest We Forget remembers 100 years since the start of the First World War, a momentous occasion that touched the lives of almost every Australian and which the impacts are still felt today.


Join Cr Gail Sellers, Mayor of Gladstone Region, during the official launch of the exhibition at 11am, next Wednesday April 22  at the Gallery & Museum to discover some of the local stories featured in the display.
