Additional Information

Introduction

The National War Memorial of Victoria is a stunning tribute to the Australians who have served in armed conflicts. Its monuments and gardens were first dedicated in 1934, but has changed over the years, and regularly contains new exhibitions. A visit on Remembrance Day (November 11th) is a particularly touching experience: at exactly 11 am, the Ray of Light shines through the roof onto the Stone of Remembrance, illuminating the word "love."
