Shrine of Remembrance
The Shrine consists of a circular colonnade of 18 columns representing 1918, the year of peace at the end of World War I. Written around the top coping are the names of the battles in which Australian units figured prominently - ANZAC, Cocos Islands, Romani, Jerusalem, Damascus, Pozieres, Bullecourt, Messines, Ypres, Amiens, Villers-Bretonneaux, Mont St Quentin and Hindenburg Line.
The Shrine is reached via two impressive, sweeping stone staircases. In the centre is the Eternal Flame of Remembrance, set in a bronze urn with the word Remembrance repeated around the bottom.
