The Shrine of Remembrance is a building with a soul. Opened in 1934, the Shrine is the Victorian state memorial to Australians who served in global conflicts throughout our nation’s history. Inspired by Classical architecture, the Shrine was designed and built by veterans of the First World War. Renowned for its architecture the Shrine offers a multi-layered journey rich in meaning and symbology. Set in an elevated position as the centrepiece of the sprawling park lands at the southern end of the city’s cultural precinct, the Shrine provides unrivalled, panoramic views of Melbourne. A Ray of Light traces its path across the commemorative stone every half hour as it does naturally at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month each year. Beneath the inner sanctum a labyrinth of galleries unfolds, featuring over 800 artworks, historical artefacts and the personal effects of Australians at war. Special exhibitions and events are held throughout the year providing an ever changing experience. For a unique insight into this special place, Shrine tours are available daily from the Visitor Centre at 11:00am and 12:45pm. Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
