Shrine of Remembrance Tours

Shrine of Remembrance
Stark and solemn, the Shrine of Remembrance is Melbourne’s memorial for all Australians who fought in a war.

The Shrine was originally built to remember those who fought in World War One and is now open to the public for commemoration and education about all Australian victims of war. Permanent exhibitions show medals awarded to soldiers and records of service men and women. Temporary exhibitions and free daily tours at 11am and 2pm also allow visitors a chance to expand their understanding of Australia’s involvement in international conflicts.

The unique shrine is easily recognised by the two identical porticoes supported by eight Doric columns and topped with a pyramidal roof inspired by an ancient Mausoleum. The result of combining the Athenian and Turkish architectural designs in a bold white structure is nothing short of stunning.

Practical Info:

Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance is located off St Kilda Road, within the King’s Domain Parkland. It can be reached within 20 minutes when walking from the city centre.  Trams southbound from Flinders Street Station stop near the Shrine, along St Kilda Road. Also, Stop 13 for the Melbourne City Tourist Shuttle is nearby.

Opening hours are 10am and 5pm daily, with the exception of Good Friday and Christmas Day when it is closed. On ANZAC Day, the Shrine hosts a dawn service at 6am, an ANZAC march at 9am and a commemorative service at 1pm.

Shrine entry is free, but donations are encouraged. A gold coin donation will also allow visitors to lay a poppy in respect. Etiquette requires visitors to remove hats inside, turn off mobile phones and keep food and drinks outside.

The onsite Visitor’s Centre offers maps and advice, and the Shrine of Remembrance shops sell memorabilia.
Address: Birdwood Ave, Melbourne, Victoria 3000, Australia
Hours: Mon-Sun 10am-5pm

Excellent tour with Karl, who was easy to understand and knew his subject well. Brought the Shrine to life for those on our tour and we came away knowing much more of our history. Highly recommend.

DO NOT BOOK THROUGH VIATOR!!! Book through the shrine's page

, Jul 2019
I booked an accessible tour of the shrine as one of our party is in a wheelchair and an other an elderly gent with mobility issues. Upon arrival I found we could have bought concession tickets more cheaply, and used a companion card (free). NONE OF THIS WAS OFFERED ON VIATOR. Even worse, the lovely staff at the shrine told us they don't have an accessible tour and VIATOR shouldn't be selling such tours! Fortunately the staff there were just amazing and customised our tour, which included other people, to accommodate our needs. The Shrine staff can't be faulted, but but VIATOR sucks big time
