Bali Memorial


This is a pic of the Bali Bomb Victim's Memorial in Lincoln Square Park, Carlton.

It is a bit hard to 'feel' anything during the day and as well as looking much prettier at night, I think you may appreciate the solemnity of it a little more.

Each Australian vicitm who died is represented by a water jet. On each annual anniversary, the jets will receed for the day.

In the central area lights are set into the concrete to represent all of the victims, not just the Australians. While I had a rant about the skateboarders there some time ago, there are measures in place to make them desist. They need to fully realize it is a memorial. Not a bad effort eventually by the Melbourne City Council.
