This has been our second Australia Day since moving down under and I have to say I really wanted to get to see the Lotterywest Skyworks this year.
Last year we were in North Perth and although we got a half decent view we were on the city side as opposed to the River side so only managed to get the views from behind the Bankwest Tower (the triangular shaped building in this picture (click thumbnail for a bigger picture).
Apparently the 2008 Lotterywest Skyworks were a massive success again this year although we decided in the end not to make the journey into the CBD.
Traveling into the CBD to see a firework show which doesn’t start until 9pm with a 5 year old, 5 month old and 500,000 other folks trying to leave the CBD at the same time didn’t sound like to much fun so we decided to give it a miss.
Maybe next year :)
