The Shrine of Remembrance is a worthy visit for locals and also for travellers as the guides are very informative and interesting. Tours are free and are definitely worth taking advantage of as there are many parts of the shrine that a visitor may just skim over but there is actually a story and reason behind most elements of the...

The memorial was along our walk into the CBD...so no extra effort was made to see it. It would be more meaningful to the citizens of Australia.

It's worth a visit to see Australia's involvement with war over the years. There is a small information center and display of war memorabilia that is interesting. Inside the main shrine it's peaceful and with the tall structures provides that quiet space for remembering those who died in the war. All in you can do this in about an hour,... More

The Shrine is a beautiful memorial honouring the men & women who have served their country. There is an ineffable quality to the emotions it evokes as one walks through and around. The architecture, sculptures and inscriptions inspire and are cause for reflection. The view looking north through the city from the top of the steps helps to place the... More

Anyone who is into military history, an Australian citizen or just interested in Australia and what makes us who we are today, must pay their respects at the Shrine. Go there this ANZAC Day and take in the atmosphere and remember our men and women who fought and cared for us, and gave of their lives.

The Shrine is an outstanding tribute to the Nation's fallen and the part played by our Military forces.The eternal flame is a moving place to experience and the surrounding gardens superb. The dawn service is an amazing experience.

Have been to dawn service at the Shrine many times and it still brings me close to tears every time. I feel Its my duty to pay my respects to all the soldiers who went to war to protect our country...especially those who lost their lives in the process. Even if you don't get to go for dawn service all... More

We visited on a Saturday and walked about 30 mins from our hotel in exhibition st. The shuttle bus also stops right outside. The venue is immaculate and the on site guide is knowledgable and helpful. The building is beautiful and with a 360 degree view from the balcony including ocean views. The visitors centre has a great display of... More
