Shrine of Remembrance

Birdwood Avenue, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

A visit to the Shrine of Remembrance is a relevant and inspiring learning experience. Students will gain valuable insights into Australian history and changing national identity and will be encouraged to reflect on the personal qualities exemplified by the spirit of ANZAC. Built after the First World War (1914-1918) – the ‘war to end all wars’ – the Shrine is Victoria’s memorial to all those who have served Australia in armed conflicts and peacekeeping operations. The Shrine is an ideal setting for students to undertake programs that encourage remembrance of the service and sacrifice of Australia’s servicemen and women. All students attending the Shrine take part in a commemorative service.
