World War I memorial
The Shrine of Remembrance honors those soldiers who died in the two World Wars.  Building commenced in 1927 and its Egyptian and Greek motifs reflect the way Australians remembered World War I.  It has been designed so that on Armistice Day (11th day of the 11th month) if the sun is shining, a shaft of light hits the word 'LOVE' on the Stone of Remembrance.
