Last Post Service

Sundays at 4:45pm on the Shrine's northern forecourt.

Event Details

Sunday, 3 September 2023 to Sunday, 26 January 2025

Join us at the week’s close to remember those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom.

This 15-minute service takes place every Sunday* at 4:45pm and includes bugle calls and piper, Shrine Guard in historic uniform, a wreath-laying, recital of the Ode, and lowering of the flags.

This family-friendly event is the perfect way to end your day at the Shrine or a day out in Melbourne.

Each service commemorates a different event from Australia's military history.

(*No Last Post Service is conducted when Christmas Day falls on a Sunday)
