We met up with some people at 7.00 but quickly realised that a group was going to have little chance of staying together in such a huge mob.
So we wandered off by ourselves. It was still light so we headed to the NGV, following some of the crowd.
The Edward Steichen exhibition was free. As I had seen it before, and as it was reasonably busy, we didn't spend a lot of time there but still enjoyed it greatly. It is a wonderful exhibition.
Then we had a wander in the garden outside, as well as a brief walk through the Great Hall. There were events and people everywhere.
By the time we had finished there, it was dark.

It was SO crowded at the intersection of Flinders St and Swanston St that we couldn't get to the buildings beside St Paul's cathedral.
We headed the other way and saw the Flinders St station show (Wonderland)

as well as going along the river to see the Vortex.

By this time we were done in - and the crowds were still growing. So, having covered very little ground but also having seen plenty, we went home.
