Every year, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we pause to remember those men and women who have died or suffered in all wars and peacekeeping operations.

Come to the Shrine Forecourt for the Victorian State Remembrance Day Service, attended by the Governor of Victoria. One minute of silence will be observed at 11am. Schools are encouraged to attend and student representatives will be invited to lay wreaths after the Governor's address and formal wreath layings are complete.

After the ceremony all are invited the visit the Sanctuary and witness the sun pass across the Stone of Remembrance, landing on the word 'LOVE' at 12 noon.

Remembrance Ceremonies, featuring a simulation of the Ray of Light, will take place in the Sanctuary every half an hour from 12.30pm, with the last ceremony held at 4.30pm.

The Flag Ceremony and Last Post is conducted on the Shrine WWII Forecourt at 5.00pm.
