Most nations, sooner or later, develop a memorial to those who gave their lives in the formation of the country. This is Australia’s. The Parthenon in Athens and the Tom of Mausolus in Halicarnassus inspire the architecture. It’s a tribute to every Australian who ever died in war. Inside, there is a marble stone upon which an inscription reads: Greater love hath no man. The location, which has seen much restoration over the years is anow a serene and beautiful garden, all of which make a wonder, if solemn opportunity for photographs. In the Forecourt here, the Queen of England lit a flame in 1954, and that flame has not been extinguished since. Other monuments to see include: the Remembrance Garden, the Crypt, the Sanctuary and the Legacy Olive Tree.

Shrine Of Remembrance, Melbourne Reviews - Write a Review
I really appreciate the respect and reverence of this whole place towards the subject matter of the sacrifice of war. The names of soldiers are inscribed and kept in meticulous condition, showing us that war isn't glamour, but a tale of self sacrifice and bravery. This whole feeling of solemnity is wonderfully preserved and despite not being from Australia, I can't but hold a deep sense of respect for the soldiers who served.
We visited this place as both myself and my partner love learning about the history of places and really appreciate war memorials due to both having family that have served for generations! This place is wonderful, it's really really well presented and everything is easy to see and read. I'd highly recommend for anyone and everyone to give it a visit.
A nice place to get some alone time. Walk through the display and get some information about the battle. Go to the roof and get a beautiful view of Melbourne.
We happened to arrive when there was a last post service. There were lots of school kids there but they stayed to designated areas so they didn't really run amock lol. The memorial was nice, and the ceremony was okay. The staff were pretty good. The tank outside was pretty cool.
This building is massive and as well as it should be. It serves as a memorial for the soldiers that have lost their lives. There is a flame out front that continues to burn. Also, there is a building in the distance that if you look from the steps it will resemble a face. Just a little fun fact.
