  • It was a serene experience relieving the history of Victorians. Visited on a Sunday morning. The place was quite empty and we also witnessed a military ceremony to pay homage to the fallen in war. About how to reach: Tram services are available right in front of the place and Botanical Garden is just a walk away.
  • A memorable visit for any international tourist or domestic visitor to Melbourne. It's nice to see the respect and honour given to those who laid down their lives foŕ their country. Large open spaces surround the Shrine on all sides. Perfect place for a day picnic. Fantastic views of the city from the top of the Shrine.
