    In my opinion the most underrated landmark in Melbourne. Should be talked about and visited throughout the year, not just ANZAC Day. Came and did the VIP Guided tour (walk in customer) for $20, but there is a free daily tour. However I thought it was well worth the price and you get a more detailed and less crowded experience. Tour went for 50 mins, there’s some climbing of stairs so keep that in mind. The views up top are breathtaking. The museum on the bottom floor is well curated, maintained and full of knowledge. Can easily spend 1/2 a day here.

    It was a splendid tour and more so because I paid for a guided tour which was an excellent decision taken by me. I learnt a lot about the historical significance of the shrine and many many stories linked to it which would have been unknown to me had I not taken a guide.

    Beautiful grounds. Statues to remember the war dead, the families at home, peace keepers, and a little donkey and a medic who went above the call of duty and saved a lot of lives. Wonderful building. A great way to honor the folks who served their country in war and in peace. And even a boat from Gallipoli (the First World War 1916).

    If you look south down Swanston Street, it is imposible to miss the Shrine. The Shrine is a striking monument, built in Cassical style, resembling the Parthenon in Athens. The Shrine honours those solders who have served Australia in war-time. Initially it was for those who fell in World War I, but it has since been extended to c ommemorate those who served in all conflicts, including peacekeeping. There is a lot to see, you can easily spend an hour here. The location in King's Domain, just off St Kilda Road, is easy to get to. The Shrine is the centre for ceremonies for ANZAC Day and Rememberance Day.

    Very interesting place to visit for foreigners especially European students who don't know much about Australian history. The guide was very precise and informative and we enjoyed the tour beside the amazing building which is one of a kind.

    Excellent tour with Karl, who was easy to understand and knew his subject well. Brought the Shrine to life for those on our tour and we came away knowing much more of our history. Highly recommend.

    Was left absolutely speechless after talking a walk around the grounds and through the museum inside, it's a passion of mine to visit places like this to pay respect for what those who came before sacrificed for us. I wish we had something of this scale in the UK to celebrate our heroes.

    The grounds cover the various wars participated in by military from Victoria, Australia. From the top steps, a nice view of the Melbourne skyline can be viewed. A ceremony was held inside the sanctuary building during the tour.

    Australia was in it through nineteenth and twentieth centuries in various conflicts. Australians from Victoria and other places went to fight and died in battle. Through the First World War and the Second World War the Australian soldiers and navy and airmen fought alongside British, Indian and American forces against Nazi Germany and Japan. So much was lost in this great conflict. Korean wars also took a toll. This shrine is on their memory. A memorial service happens throughout the day till 4/30 pm. The balcony gives awesome views of the city. The Musuem is a wonderful treat. But you need time - at least half a day ! No charge. The gardens are peaceful and beckoning. Must go there while in Melbourne folks.
