Australia Melbourne1 Captain Cook's cottage and the War Memorial

(1 vote)

Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria, and the second most populous city in Australia after Sydney. Captain Cook's Cottage is a cottage rebuilt in the picturesque Fitzroy Gardens to commemorate the voyages of Captain James Cook, discoverer of Australia.
The Melbourne War Memorial, more commonly known as the Shrine of Remembrance, is the largest memorial in all of Victoria and is probably Melbourne's most visited and recognized landmarks. It was built to remember the soldiers and others who died during World War I and all armed conflicts and peacekeeping missions since.
For Australia, as for many nations, the First World War remains the most costly conflict in terms of deaths and casualties. From a population of fewer than five million, 416,809 men enlisted, of which over 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.
