The Shrine of Remembrance was built between 1927 and 1934 as a place for Victorians to grieve, honour and preserve the memories of those that had lost their lives in WWI. Now it serves as a memorial to all Australians who served at war.

There are services at the Shrine for both ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day with all welcome to attend. It's more than just a static memorial however, with exhibitions and talks that reflect on past Australian conflicts held regularly. Guided walking tours are also available.

Admission to the Shrine is fee though donations are welcome.
