The Shrine Reserve is one of Melbourne’s most enduring and important memorial gardens. The architects saw the landscape around the building as an essential part of the purpose of the place as they looked to provide sanctuary and solace for those who grieved.
Join us while we go inside to explore the Galleries of Remembrance and view the magnificent Flowers of War wreath, and then venture outside to visit the garden courtyards and Post-45 Memorial Garden to discuss the significance behind their plantings and design.
We shall look at how the Reserve has continued to adapt and change since the first Memorial plantings in August 1934 and, weather permitting, we shall also visit some of the special memorial trees on the Reserve.
Finish with an opportunity to chat and warm up with a hot drink (at own expense) at Jardin Tan café.
