- The Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance turns 70 -
When Melbourne thinks of Remembrance Day, it thinks of
the Shrine of Remembrance.
On this day, Red Symons speaks with Peter Lovell, Heritage consultant and Director of Allom Lovell & Assoc, consulted on the Shrine re-development.
"The Shrine of Remembrance is Victoria’s largest and most visited
war memorial and is probably Melbourne’s most recognised landmark.
The new entrance to the Shrine of
Remembrance is making access easier.
It is a permanent and lasting memorial to the ANZAC spirit which is confirmed by the number of visitors to the Shrine throughout the year and the many people who attend the more than 120 ceremonies that are held at the Shrine annually.
The Shrine is located on Melbourne’s most recognised boulevard, St Kilda Road, just south of the Melbourne central business district."
