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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Melbourne Itinerary 6 Days.

You MUST visit the Shrine of Remembrance. Take your time to read and learn of Australian involvement in war and peace keeping missions. There is no glorification of war, quite the opposite. The guides are informative and very happy to answer your questions. A very humbling and sombre experience. I personally intend going back to learn more and understand of this wonderful Country's proud history.
Great place to visit. Could take about 2.5-3 hours if you want to see the place properly. It's huge. The exhibits are really good. The place is easily accessible by public transport. 1 minutes walking from tram stop. For tourists it's a good spot worth a visit. Great for outdoor photography too.
Really well done. Almost epic in nature and well worth the visit. Well done stories, tours are twice a day at 11am and 2pm. A bit price at $35 but very well done. You can also just walk around and read, which everyone visiting Australia should do.
Was fantastic. Such great displays. Mind you a coffee shop would not go astray there, as especially after climbing all those steps!
From the moment we walked up the hill, to the minute we climbed the steps, we were in awe of this magnificent monument. With just its structure, it made us feel the love and respect of Australia to its countrymen who fought in the war. Beautiful place. Best if you can catch a mini tour about this shrine to learn more why this shrine was made the way it is today.
