The State Government will support the establishment of a memorial to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander servicemen and women in Brisbane’s Anzac Square.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said on Wednesday the proposal by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dedicated Memorial Committee Queensland (ATSIDCMCQ) would recognise their service and sacrifice.

Indigenous Australians have served in conflicts since the Boer War in 1899.

The State Government will contribute $25,000 to the memorial’s development.

The memorial will be designed by Queensland artists John Smith Gumbula, a Wakka Wakka man, and Liam Hardy.

Cherbourg has a memorial to Indigenous war veterans, which was unveiled last year by Leila Combo, Eric Law and Jack Simpson
