A wonderful place to explore and contemplate the sacrifices made by the men and women of the armed force both then and now. The view looking down St Kilda Rd toward Melbourne City is nothing short of spectacular. The surrounding grounds are beautifully maintained and inside the Shrine is both peaceful & eerie at the same time. A very though... More

I was just on a walk and stumbled upon this site. I had not planned to visit but once happened upon took the time to see. Several areas were under construction but I took the opportunity to climb to the upper viewing areas. The sight lines of the city were spectacular and one of my favourite accidental finds. The interior... More

As someone whose Grandfather was at Gallipoli and father who served in the South Pacific during WWII I have always wanted to visit the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne. Although undergoing some renovations I felt honoured to be present at one of the Services held daily and was moved by the dignity with which it was conducted. The view from... More

The Shrine of Remembrance is one of the best historical sites to visit in Melbourne. The monument is grandeur on its own, presenting great photo opportunities while remembering those who lost their lives during the World War. If you have time, it's worth climbing up the steps to the top of the monument, which gives an excellent view of the... More

A beautiful place that makes you think of those who gave their lives. Spend a few hours to take it all in, the medal display is fantastic. The flame that burns underneath the column is a beautiful sight. Well worth taking the time to visit, appeals to all ages.

A great place see Australia's way of honoring their soldiers. You can walk up to the top of the monument and get a good view of the city.

This is a monument to those who lost their lives in military service and a museum dedicated to the Australians and New Zealanders who served in World War I. At certain times of the day a light that simulates sunlight shines on the center stone inscribed with "Greater love hath no man." Near so many other sites, but worth a... More

We stayed just across the road from the shrine and popped over one morning for a look, very impressive and worth a visit. Being close to the botanical gardens it's worth combining the two (and you can walk from the CBd or it's on the main tram line heading to South Melbourne)

It was a nice place to visit and remember those who fought and died in our past wars. It's in a great location and easy to get to. Lovely views from the top too.
