Post Australia Day headache

Sadly, Australia Day revellers trashed some of our beaches and parks yesterday. South Beach, the St Kilda Botanical Gardens and Elwood were the worst affected. South Beach had to be closed temporarily to clean up the debris which included large amounts of broken glass. With more hot weather expected today, these very busy areas were prioritised for clean up today. I am reminded of the message given by Aunty Carolyn Briggs at yesterday's Australia Day citizenship ceremony: 'Bunjil asked visitors not to harm the land or the children of the land'.
