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

The Last Post Service takes place every Sunday at 4.45pm on the Shrine's northern forecourt and includes bugle calls and piper, Shrine Guard in historic uniform, a wreath-laying, recital of the Ode and lowering of the flags. 

Each week we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the people who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed. Visitors are welcome to lay a floral tribute at the Eternal Flame.

Held between the anniversaries of the start and end of Operation Habitat (1 May – 30 June 1991), this service honours Australia's role in this critical humanitarian mission.  On 26 May, we remember the compassion and dedication of Australian personnel who deployed to Kurdistan, northern Iraq, to deliver vital medical aid and support to Kurdish refugees following the Gulf War.

Shrine Representative: Shrine Governor Colonel Jason Cooke
