Shrine of Remembrance

A war memorial built as a token of profound gratitude for all the men and women who served Australia in wars and conflicts, the Shrine of Remembrance was built in 1934 and features permanent and special exhibitions. The monument sits on a grassy knoll with its design inspired by ancient Greek architecture. Every year, on November 11th, celebrated as Remembrance Day, a ray of natural light shines through the roof onto the Stone of Remembrance at 11a, illuminating the word "love" in the inscription on the stone. Two guided tours of the peaceful yet sobering landmark are offered daily. The Galleries of Remembrance showcases artworks, artifacts and medals of soldiers.

Royal Exhibition Building

This huge, Victorian-era building is World Heritage-listed for its architectural and historical significance. Situated among the tree-lined avenues of Carlton Gardens, it stands as a Melbourne landmark. The scale and grandeur of the building reflect the wealth of Victoria's gold rush era, so does its richly painted interior. The Exhibition Building was constructed in 1880 to host Melbourne's first Centennial Exhibition, a display of inventions and arts from around the globe. It went on to become the seat of Australia's first parliament in 1901. Daily tours provide an insight into the building's history.

Eureka Skydeck

At almost 300 meters (984 feet) from the ground, Eureka Skydeck 88 is the highest public viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere. Located on the 88th floor of Eureka Tower, the viewing platform reveals sky-high views of central Melbourne, including the Yarra River and the Federation Square. For the thrill-seeker, an added attraction is The Edge, a glass cube which is gradually extended out from the building, giving the sensation of being suspended in space. Visiting the tower is highly recommended for an unforgettable experience.

Federation Square

Federation Square bustles with activity throughout the day. A cultural hotspot, cafes, galleries and cinemas dot the square. The central hub of the city, Federation Square is also home to multiple events catering to every kind of audience. A quirky, boxed structure with sprawling lawns surrounding the main building, it is a sight to behold in the evenings when it is lit up in various colours. The Australian Centre For The Moving Image and The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia are among the most notable venues within the structure.

St. Patricks Cathedral

Part of Melbourne's cultural heritage, St. Patricks Cathedral bespeaks of faith and belief in almighty. With daily worship and weekly masses, the church exudes an environment of peace and harmony. The cathedral is also a center for exhibitions and concerts of sacred music.

Werribee Park Mansion

Incongruously located in a nondescript outer suburb, Werribee Park is one of Australia's most palatial homes, formerly the mansion of a wealthy grazing family and now a public museum. Erected in the 19th century, it is still authentically furnished to give a taste of how the upper classes lived, although venture into the servants quarters for an altogether less grandiose experience! The mansion is set in a beautiful formal garden, on a 140-hectare property. It can easily be combined with a visit to the adjacent Open Range Zoo.
