  • Any tourist visiting Melbourne, whether international or domestic, will have a memorable experience. A beautiful view over this part of Melbourne is available from the roof of the Shrine, which is free to enter. Discover the real-life stories of Australians in wartime in Melbourne's iconic landmark. It was well presented and informative. Open daily 10am–5pm (last entry 4.30pm).
  • It was a serene experience relieving the history of Victorians. Visited on a Sunday morning. The place was quite empty and we also witnessed a military ceremony to pay homage to the fallen in war. About how to reach: Tram services are available right in front of the place and Botanical Garden is just a walk away.
