#Perth prepares to celebrate return of Skyworks

Australia Day Skyshow from the South Perth Foreshore: Photo by Michael Wilson, The West Australian.IT was the Australia Day sky show Perth has been waiting two years to see – and it did not disappoint.

As the city’s night sky was lit up with a spectacular array of colour just after 8pm, West Australians packed the Swan River foreshore to watch the climax to a big day of celebrations.

A year earlier, the show had to be cancelled at the last minute after a fatal plane crashed during pre-fireworks airshow, killing the pilot and his partner.

It was predicted as many as 300,000 people might turn out to watch the fireworks and the temperature peaked at 30.9C just before 1pm, making for perfect conditions.
