The Shrine of Remembrance was built between July 1928 – November 1934 to honor the 114,000 men and women of Victoria who served and those who died in the Great War of 1914-1918.

The Shrine of Remembrance is the main war memorial in Victoria, Australia.
On the walls of the Shrine are carved the words:

LET ALL MEN KNOW THAT THIS IS HOLY GROUND. THIS SHRINE, ESTABLISHED IN THE HEARTS OF MEN AS ON THE SOLID EARTH, COMMEMORATES A PEOPLE’S FORTITUDE AND SACRIFICE. YE THEREFORE THAT COME AFTER, GIVE REMEMBRANCE.

Today a vandal put out the flame.
