We came across the shrine by accident, having walked partly round the Botanic gardens. A moving memory to those who gave their lives. Many thanks from a Pom.

The Shrine of Remembrance consists of several smaller sculptures and memorials as well as the main building. There is a quiet hush about the place, as is reasonable to expect. The main shrine has been built in a way so that the sun at 11am on 11th November hits the oculus at the top of the pyramid and sends a beam of light down to the stone of remembrance, which reads 'Greater Love Hath No Man'- very moving. The views of the city from the Shrine are also incredible. There is no charge to visit the Shrine.

I've visited the Shrine in Melbourne a few times which in itself is amazing. However, to really appreciate this wonderful building and the history of it and all who participated in wars, do yourself a favour and book a tour. The information our tour guide shared was incredible and the exhibits fascinating. Melbourne is a beautiful city and you have a 360 deg view from the top level of the Shrine. A day to remember.

There is always something going on at "The Shrine". From the different services in the nave, talks and lectures on various aspects of our military history and the collection of ephemera and militaria. This is not a dull and musty mausoleum but an interesting and diverse collection gathered by the Shrine and also on loan from the Australian War Memorial. I have taken Scouts, International Exchange students, Interstate and International visitors and locals that had never been visited the Shrine and they have all appreciated the experience. The displays cover everything from Colonial Military forces through to recent conflicts and humanitarian missions conducted by the various elements of the Australian Defence Force. The view from the top of the Shrine looking across the forecourt and back up St. Kilda Road to the city is worth the visit alone. Take the time to reflect at the Eternal Flame and then walk the gardens as most trees have been planted by the various service associations and traditionally that is where the returned servicemen met or still meet post Anzac Day Marches. Sadly not many left from WW11. It was my privilege to have been a March Marshall for many years and luckily I got to meet and speak with many men and women before they passed. If you can get to an ANZAC day march it is well worth the effort as this day is probably more significant to the national psyche than Australia Day. Irrespective the Shrine is worth a visit anytime. Lest We Forget.
