I recommend all visitors go to the shrine, as it is an impressive structure surrounded in beautifully laid out gardens, and provides visitors with a different aspect of how Australians coped with wars a long way from our shores. it's free.
The visitor centre underneath has a short film which is really informative, there are displays of medals, dedications to various battallions and so on in a peaceful and respectful setting.
You can go up to the balcony and see great 360 views of Melbourne. If you take the opportunity to chat to one of the guides (usually a Veteran), they can provide more information on the building and surrounds, such as the olive trees from Turkey and the Lone Pine tree.
