General information
Type Street
Location Brisbane

Ann Street runs parallel to Adelaide Street and is the northern-most street in the Brisbane CBD in Queensland, Australia. It is a major thoroughfare, running straight through the city and linking the suburb of Fortitude Valley with the Riverside Expressway.

Parks and buildings along Ann Street include the State Law Building, Central Railway Station, Brisbane City Hall, King George Square, King George Central, and also ANZAC Square and the Shrine of Remembrance (both of which commemorate Australia's and New Zealand's war dead).

Each year, on ANZAC Day, on 25 April, a Dawn memorial service is held at the Shrine of Remembrance, with wreaths being laid around the 'Eternal Flame' in memory of those who died in conflict.[1] There is also a memorial service held each year on Armistice Day, 11 November and wreaths are again laid at the 'Eternal Flame'. It is appropriate that the Shrine of Remembrance was dedicated on Armistice Day, 11 November 1930.

King George Square busway station has entrances from King George Square and is accessible from Ann Street.

Ann Street is home to several historic Brisbane churches including St John's Cathedral, Brisbane, Ann Street Church of Christ and St Andrew's Presbyterian Church.
