well worth a visit as it is a lovely part of Melbourne with stunning views and a great park. The actual shrine is interesting but would mean much more to you if you are interested in war history.

Nice views of the city from the balcony. The shrine itself is not big inside but has an interesting ceiling. From the outside it's more impressive.
