  • Beautifully landscaped, the Shrine of Remembrance takes you back in time to the memories of the various wars fought by the valiant soldiers of this country, and gives you superb views of the city.

  • It is brilliant what has been done beneath that magnificent monument, well worth a visit. The guide was a lovely bloke, full of interesting information about the initial construction. The massive black columns made from solid, 300 million yr old sedimentary rock. Go there.
  • Absolutely a place to put on your travel list. Very helpful staff. Give yourself a couple of hours to take it all in & a walk around the park. Will return when we go back to Melbourne.
