About Shrine Of Remembrance, Melbourne

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.

  • Beautiful monument to the soldiers lost in war. Perhaps one of the best I have seen. Even if it is closed, it is worth the walk just to see the structure and the grounds. They are well kept and the view of Melbourne is quite nice. Worth a trip as part of a walk though the botanical gardens.

  • Very moving place. The visitor centre and sanctuary has a very extensive exhibition of Australia's military encounters that would take an hour or more to read and experience everything. There is also an elaborate search engine with a display wall to find servicemen. Up on the balcony, there is a great view of the city skyline and surroundings.

  • Magnificent shrine built the shape of Temple of Athena , houses the Crypt in honour of fallen soldiers and exhibits from various wars Great place not only as a shrine but also as a museum. Heaven for history lovers It's situated in Royal Botanical Garden and out side is relaxing and serene.

  • Beautifully presented, tranquil and unrushed, reverent space for contemplating the sadness and horror of war. Exhibits are understated, but the implications are obvious, and for this I thank the designers and policy makers. Lest we glorify, and lest we repeat! Lest we forget. It was meaningful exploring the gardens and seeing the many trees dedicated to sections of the armed forces.

  • The building looks like a kind of pyramid. When I walked inside, I was feeling a quiet and sacred. The stones used for building are cold and nice! Try touching it with your bare hand!
