If you look south down the middle of Swanston Street, you’ll be looking directly at the Shrine of Remembrance, which was built as a memorial for those who died in the First World War and now stands as a memorial for all the wars in which Australia has played a part. There’s a great view of the city from the top.

    The Shrine has an atmosphere of respect and honour for those who fought to protect the people of Australia. There is a sense of serenity and spiritual reflection.

    Shrine of Remembrance es uno de los monumentos de guerra más grande de Australia, el cual da honor a todos los australianos que han servido en la guerra. ✨ Es un lugar ideal para ver el atardecer.

    A must for anyone with even a passing interest in military history. Make sure to visit the gift shop on the lower level.

    Excellent war memorial, very informative. Get on the balcony and take in the incredible view of the Melbourne skyline. Purchase a poppy with a small donation!
