The Shrine Tour is a small group, guided walking tour experience exploring Melbourne’s premier landmark.
The Shrine of Remembrance was Australia’s first national war memorial. Today, it remains an icon of cultural and heritage significance for all Australians. Built to honour the men and women who served in the First World War, this great monument recognises a century of service by Victorians and Australians in all conflicts from the 1850s to the present day.
The Shrine Tour offers visitors a multi-layered experience rich in meaning and symbology. Your professional tour guide will lead you on a personal journey of discovery as you explore the building’s classically inspired architecture. Experience the Ray of Light ceremony in the reverent solitude of the Sanctuary. View breath-taking vistas of Melbourne from the Balcony. And immerse yourself in the evocative stories of Victorians in the context of war in the Galleries of Remembrance.
