It was a really interesting visit plenty of stairs to climb but I think they do have a lift ( not sure you would have to check) The view from the top is fantastic. The people who talk to you about the building are very knowledgeable and make it interesting.

What a wonderfully contemplative place. The surrounds and entrance are beautiful. We stood in silence and listened to the Last Post - VERY moving. Lovely guides too.

When you visit the Shrine of Remembrance, make it a point to visit the top level and enjoy some spectacular views of the city from the outside. There was an event taking place in the courtyard area the day we visited and it was good to witness the same.

We have attended the Dawn Service for a few years now and find it a very moving experience. We have also visited at other times with tourists. Apart from the memorial to the Service Personal it is also a great place to view the city and surrounds from the upper balcony.
