I was walking through the area and heard an announcement for a presentation in the Shrine. It was very informative and the guide was extremely enthusiastic and the reenactment of the light passing the shrine. Definitely worth a visit.

Last post played whilst we were there. Great opportunity to pay our respects in what was a suitably impressive edifice. Interesting and informative displays in the crypt and lovely views over the city from the balcony.

This is a beautiful spot near the Botanical Gardens to peacefully remember Australian citizens who fell in service to their country. Beautiful views of the city add to the pleasure of being here.

The Shrine of Remembrance is definitely worth a visit.. The building and the space is very moving and humbling tribute to the many nations who have fought alongside Australia. Don't miss the crypt and the views from the roof!

If you have any interest in the military history of Australia then this place is for you. It is a mixture of museum and shrine providing lots of information and boards with background to conflicts and personal stories. There are lots of retired military types...More

Hi, Most if not all of your questions will be answered by looking at the "Top 10 Questions about Melbourne" on the top right hand side of this page. It is not difficult to find supermarkets/cafes/restaurants throughout Victoria, let alone Melbourne. It is a modern country will all the facilities you might expect. Perhaps you could look at a guide book on Australia to get a feel for what we are like - anything from cosmopolitan city, country towns, surf beaches, rolling farmland, deserts...More

You do not have time to visit Noosa/Coolum as well as the Gold Coast. Pick one or the other for your three night stay. Other than that, you have a good balance. We talk in Australian dollars so $125 USD is about $171.00 AUD. This is far too low for accommodation for a family of three unless you are looking at shared backpacker hostel rooms. Taking tours is going to be far more expensive than a hire car - you might be better to deal with driving on the left. Watch some you tube videos - it...More
