Overview

Born of great gratitude towards volunteers who protected the state of Victoria and Australia at great cost, the Shrine of Remembrance was dedicated in 1934, and constantly features new exhibitions in a spectacular reserve setting with monuments and gardens. The premise with its ancient Greek-influenced architecture is fraught with symbolism. For a special Remembrance Day, see the natural Ray of Light shine through the roof onto the Stone of Remembrance illuminating the word "love" at precisely 11am every November 11th. Visit this beautiful peaceful place for a sober recognition of sacrifices made by those before us. There are two guided tours daily, and the Ray Of Light remembrance service occurs in the Sanctuary every half hour. Admission free, but donations welcome.
