There will be a few events hosted around the city (mostly boring or horridly expensive), and quite a good number of major city attractions will be offering discounts off their ticket prices – a great chance to head up Eureka if you have not already done that.

    I was hoping for free entry to the Eureka Tower, as they did for the Rialto last year but oh well, 2 for 1 is alright.
