“Moving.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

A fitting tribute to those who lost their lives in the many conflicts Australia has fought in. Check on your timings once a day there is a minutes silence as the sun enters through the ceiling and illuminates a memorial.

“A must visit place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The setting I the gardens is magnificent. Easy to get to via tram from the city. The Eternal Flame causes people to stop and reflect on the evil of war. Walk around the building and be inspired to join the next Dawn Service on ANZAC day or the service on Remembrance Day

“Pay your tribute to the heros”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

It is a very solemn place, and is a place full of wealth of knowledge to remind people of the meaning/implications of war. Volunteer guides are available to assist visitors. So, do plan your trip in advance to benefit from the trip there.

“A moving tribute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Attractions like this are worth the time to attend - a short stroll down St Kilda Road from the city and with great views and a reminder of the tragedy of war
