Gold Museum hosting Shrine of Remembrance‘s new exhibition.

Through historical photographs and personal stories, Australia Will Be There presents the chronology of the First World War (1914-19) and provides the opportunity to discover the fascinating stories with particular reference to the contribution of Victorians.

Find out about the hardships that our men and women endured and the battles that they fought alongside Allied nations – from the landings at Gallipoli to the battles in Palestine, Passchendaele and Fromelles.

Away from the frontline, discover the experiences of the people in Victoria, their contribution to the war effort and the growing social divisions which climaxed in the bitterly contested, and unsuccessful conscription referenda in 1916 and 1917.

Do you have a story to tell?

Visitors are encouraged to share their stories with the Shrine for inclusion in the exhibition. Download the story submission form and guidelines. Completed forms can be emailed to stories@shrine.org.au

Australia Will Be There is open until September 18, 2016. Find out more about our opening hours and entrance here.
