I didn't take the last picture, which explains why it's halfway decent. The thing lit up on the harbour bridge is a gold emerald (i dunno why it's not green). Emeralds evoke ideas of the Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz, which, in turn, alludes to Oz = Australia. I'm sure you'll agree that the logic of our totally awesome country is impeccable!
Heaps of chemical mayhem will be in store for 2007 =)
