Built in 1934, the Shrine is the Victorian state memorial to Australians who have served in war and peacekeeping operations throughout our nation’s history. Enter the building’s Classical interior and discover the reverent solitude of the Sanctuary. View breathtaking vistas of Melbourne from the Balcony. Immerse yourself in the real-life stories of Australians in global conflicts, with over 800 artworks, historical artefacts and personal effects featured in the Galleries of Remembrance. Special exhibitions and events are held throughout the year providing an ever changing experience.
The Shrine welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. We do ask that visitors behave in a manner that reflects the commemorative nature of the site, so that all who come here can enjoy their visit and pay their respects to those who have served.
