A great place for visit. You can climb atop the shrine to have a beautiful look of Melbourne all around. The inside of the shrine is somber and is nicely maintained. You head shall bnow naturally.

The shrine of remembrance is a nice place to come to get away from the busy city and focus on calmness. It is easy to get to and has a little gift shop too.

This is well worth the stop and offers a beautiful view of the city! Worth climbing up to the top as well. Make sure you time your visit right so you can catch a reenactment of the light shining inside the shrine. Very powerful.
