It is often regarded as being an event of equal significance to Australian history as the storming of the Bastille was to French history or the Battle of the Alamo to the history of the United States, but almost equally often dismissed as an event of little long-term consequence. Although the revolt failed, it was a watershed event in Australian politics, and is often described controversially as the "Birth of Australian Democracy".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eureka_Stockade (intresting read)

Blue and White for the Eureka Flag (original flag below) Red for the bloodshed, and gold because it was all about the gold miners.

Also Eureka is a famous exclamation attributed to Archimedes. "Eureka, I've found it!"

bit of history for ya'll.

For some reason it reminds me of a more modernized Sears Tower. Eureka is absolutely great and has one of the best designs ive seen other than Pre SWFC. I hate it now

Seriously, I can't keep my eyes on the road everytime I drive past this building and the rest of the skyline when passing the city on the Westgate or Tullamarine Freeways!
