Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne

 

The Shrine of Remembrance is Victoria’s largest and most visited war memorial of national significance, and one of Melbourne’s most recognised landmarks. Through commemorative services, exhibitions, and education, veterans can share the stories of ordinary people in extraordinary times whose efforts and experiences helped shape our nation.

The Shrine of Remembrance was founded in 1934 as the National War Memorial of Victoria

The Shrine is a place of national, state, and cultural significance. It’s enduring purpose is to be a memorial honouring the service and sacrifice of Victorians and Australians in war, peacemaking and peacekeeping.

This is done by:

  • engaging more than one million people annually as visitors and participants in our commemorative and education programs
  • conducting more than 200 commemorative ceremonies each year, including major Anzac Day and Remembrance Day services
  • developing and delivering high quality education and learning programs to students and communities across Victoria
