Shrine Of Remembrance - Review
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.

Shrine Of Remembrance, Melbourne Reviews
It's a war memorial so do observe silence when you're there. Building's architecture looks archaic (definitely the image it has to portray) but it is sturdy. It is dark inside, so be careful if you come with elderly. 15-30 minutes visit when you're in the building. Top floor has a nice view.
Amazing place that I would like to bring my kids to visit it again. Gained a lot knowledge about the country’s history. The building itself and interiors are artistic and stunning.
Really great place to see and many things to do here. Your able to relax and take pictures at the front and once you come in you can go to the balcony at the top for more pictures or you can go underground where the permanent war exhibition is where you can see all the information about WWI and WWII as well as having authentic uniform from those times and information on what the Australian defence force is doing now. Great place to see and its free.
Awesome place to visit. It is solemn but informative. The awe it inspires is not to be overlooked or to be dismissed. The sheer size of the building and quality of what they have done is excellent. A place for us all to look back and remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
A picturesque building yet a solemn place to remember those who have fallen. Amazing views of the city and surrounding gardens from the balcony. Well worth a visit.
