About Shrine of RemembranceThis is one of the important tourist attractions in Melbourne and is a place of historical importance as well. Essentially a war memorial, this shrine was constructed as an ode to the hundreds of Australian men and women soldiers who lost their lives during World War I. The memorial was open to the general public during 11th November 1934 and is currently one of the biggest in Australia. Every year, on the 25th of April, ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day is observed here.
Today, tourists who come to this memorial can get a bird’s eye view of historic accidents through the memorial’s exhibition and museums. Lots of educational activities happen regularly to teach people about the richness of their bygone legacy.
