The Shrine of Remembrance Melbourne

The Shrine of Remembrance is Victoria’s largest and most visited war memorial and is Melbourne’s most recognised landmark. It is located located in Kings Domain on St Kilda Road, Melbourne. 10am - 5pm daily, closed Good Friday and Christmas Day, admission is FREE, however, the Shrine welcomes donations. For any Australian who has had family members in any of the services this is an emotional place to visit. We took out three grand children here for a visit, all three were captivated with much of what was on display. Young master grandson 14 years has always had an interest in the family Military history and he enjoy his time here the most and was in no hurry to leave. Many photos were taken, and with the beautiful views from the roof over looking the city of Melbourne. We took the time to watch the 10 minute audio/visual presentation on the history of WW1 and The Shrine and were so pleased that we did. I highly recommend a visit to the Shrine for all Australians and Tourists alike, you will not leave disappointed.
