I just happened to be in the city at 9.30pm on Australia Day. We wanted to go up to the observation deck in Eureka Tower – 88 storeys aboveground. We didn’t know what time the fireworks were due to start and we didn’t want to wait so we went back down to the ground. We walked along the riverfront and that’s when we heard loud explosions. It was the first time I’d been in the city for fireworks. Some of them were let off from the top of the Eureka Tower where we had just been. Then suddenly more started going off near the Alexandra Gardens so I ran up the stairs to St Kilda Rd and got some great photos.
