  • We were staying at the Royce Hotel and they recommended a stop here. The shrine is a great memorial to all Australians who have served in the wars. The downstairs museum was a surprise since we did...  more »
  • A somber place to visit honoring the soldiers who fought for freedom. A gift shop and WC is in the basement. A good view of the city from the top.  more »

  • What an awesome building, and if you had someone ancestry in the great wars to look up their name. It certainly brings a bit of pride finding them. But as a monument it's spectacular and well worth the exploration. There is a lot more there than meets the eye. Thumbs up if you have found a Grand Pa or relative in those books they keep?
  • A beautiful building that sits in what seems in the middle of St Kilda road when a far. The building is perfect and immaculate. The displays have a walking tour that walks you through from the early era right through to today with Iraq and Afghanistan. Uniforms, photos, books and a guided tour as well that runs every half an hour from 10am. Beautiful view from the balcony looking in all 4 directions. We'll worth the visit if you've never been.
  • Such serene. Solitude in the middle of the city. Beautiful view of the concrete jungle from the peaceful place. As it is one of a corner of botanical garden, expect landscapes, greenery, plants and trees. Picturesque!
  • The Shrine of Remembrance is a free to visit place that educates the public about Australia's part in the wars of the past as well as current humanitarian operations its involved it. Overall a great place to visit to learn about war related history. Parking spans all along the sides of the road and relatively cheap. Do try to drive to nearby and find a parking instead of parking too far away.
  • Great place to visit, very educational. Something all should see. Staff here are very knowledgable and extremely friendly, they made the experience even better. Even better if you had family fighting in WW1 or WW2 for Victoria as you can leave a digital poppy to remember them. Definitely a creative way for the memorial to keep up with technology.
