Almost ninety years ago the Victorian community built the Shrine of Remembrance, to tell the world and future generations that we would never forget the huge sacrifices which citizens make in times of international conflict. Today the Shrine is a place your students can learn about wartime history, hear about diverse people from all walks of life, and experience the living importance of remembrance in Australian communities. Our friendly guides tailor this tour to your students’ age group.
