    I very much doubt that too many "White Fella's" would desecrate a War memorial like that Unless of course they are recent arrivals.

    I would very much like to agree with you my friend, but I can't, unfortunately in Melbourne I regularly see "people", commonly described as "scum" desecrating Aussie in all sorts of ways, & they don't look like "new arrivals" to me.
    I know what you mean by "new arrivals", & for sure they do some crap, but some Aussies are in the same boat.

    From the pic it looks like the culprits left in a hurry, hopefully they heard they were about to be arrested.

    I agree. They even left a 5c deposit bottle behind so must have in a hurry & what about the wine cask, it must have been empty..

    Re: AFL, Rugby and The Races your entry fee covers cleaning the venue.....not really comparing Apple with Apples.

    Funny how it can be skewed out of prospective pretty quick.

    Yep, I'd have to agree, even when we went there 6 years ago the whole area was geared around extracting the maximum amount of money from visitors by limiting services and places to stay. Mix that with a deadline and no additional preparation and I would say that it is simply a case of poor planning.
