  • This was one of the most inspiring and informative sites we went to during our time in Melbourne. It was educational and we learned much about Australians part in both the world wars and beyond...  more »

  • The Shrine is an incredibly moving experience. Glad we did the tour as it went into more detail and explanation than would have been possible in our own. I liked how the guide politely moved non-payers away from our group. Thanks for respecting those of us who have paid. We will be back.
  • Lots of great history assembled into modern interesting displays. Worth a visit. Views of the city are breath taking. If you do nothing else besides climb to the top and take some photos is still worth the trip
