Shrine of Remembrance • Melbourne • Victoria by 

The Shrine of Remembrance, located in St Kilda Road, Melbourne, is one of the largest war memorials in Australia, and resides in Kings Domain. It was built as a memorial to the men and women of Victoria who served in World War I. It now serves as a memorial for all Australians who served in war and it is the site of annual observances of ANZAC Day (25 April) and Remembrance Day (11 November).

Designed by architects and veterans of World War I, Phillip Hudson and James Wardrop, the Shrine is designed in a classical style, being based on the Tomb of Mausolus at Halicarnassus and the Parthenon in Athens.

    This is beautiful. The sky with its ominous clouds, and their blurred motion against the sharpness of the structure. I like teh bright area around the shrine. Very nice.

  • Thanks Katya.
