'Great Balls of Fire'

Take a stroll along the Yarra river at night and come around The Crown Casino for a Fire Show. Also referred to Gas Brigades, there are 8 towers, 10 meters high, spewing fireballs which are electronically controlled. The start time varies depending on the season, but are usually seen every hour.

The fireballs are interestingly intense that a passerby can actually feel the warmth, which can be really nice on a cold winter night. Perhaps this 'show' is nothing too fancy for a night out, or could be a touristy thing to do - at the end of the day you can always stroll down towards the great variety of restaurants and bars along the same walkway.

This photo from an ordinary digital cam shows no justice to this event - so check this one out for a nicer shot that would probably make you want to see it.


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
