What an awesome building, and if you had someone ancestry in the great wars to look up their name. It certainly brings a bit of pride finding them. But as a monument it's spectacular and well worth the exploration. There is a lot more there than meets the eye. Thumbs up if you have found a Grand Pa or relative in those books they keep?
A beautiful building that sits in what seems in the middle of St Kilda road when a far. The building is perfect and immaculate. The displays have a walking tour that walks you through from the early era right through to today with Iraq and Afghanistan. Uniforms, photos, books and a guided tour as well that runs every half an hour from 10am. Beautiful view from the balcony looking in all 4 directions. We'll worth the visit if you've never been.
