A great place for visit. You can climb atop the shrine to have a beautiful look of Melbourne all around. The inside of the shrine is somber and is nicely maintained. You head shall bnow naturally.

The shrine of remembrance is a nice place to come to get away from the busy city and focus on calmness. It is easy to get to and has a little gift shop too.

This is well worth the stop and offers a beautiful view of the city! Worth climbing up to the top as well. Make sure you time your visit right so you can catch a reenactment of the light shining inside the shrine. Very powerful.

It's historical and functional. reminds me of the horror of war, of the sacrifices and the price paid for by those who would give themselves to allow us to live free. Its one of the best war memorial in the world.

This is a very moving place to visit, especially for those of us who had relatives who were ANZACs. A very fitting memorial to all our ancestors.

This monument is a must see in Melbourne, the park that you need to walk through to get there is quite big, big it is worth the visit. I suggest to walk around it and to take the walking path in front to leave it.

The sacrifice of Australian service men and women is movingly remembered here. Just a few minutes from the city.
