Hi V ... This is Eureka Tower at Southbank. It is the tallest building in Melbourne reaching a height of 297.3 meters (975 ft). You can see it clearly in the skyline in yesterday's post. It was named after a civil rebellion in Victoria i.e The Eureka Stockade. The rebellion occurred in Ballarat in 1854 in the midst of the Victorian Gold Rush. Twenty two miners lost their lives and a monument to their memory lies in Ballarat cemetery. The gold square at the top of the building commemorates the gold rush and the red vertical stripe represents the blood spilt during the revolt. The blue glass cladding that covers the building and the white horizontal stripes signifies the stockade's flag. The white lines also represent the markings on a surveyors measuring staff. Cheers J.
