Hi ppl,
My hubby is away at work and I don't fancy the crowds with 3 kids under 7 by myself or even with friends but need to do SOMETHING with my little Aussies for Oz Day!

So I am thinking, take them for a drive later and park somewhere to watch the fireworks.. Even if its miles away its better than nothing, right? Baby can be asleep, 4 yr old wont have tired legs .. I really DO need that double pram  closedeyes.gif

Or is a carpark South of Freo on the coast with a view to the harbour an impossibility? Would it be too good to be true ?

Thanks EB'ers original.gif

Have you thougth about somewhere along Canning Hwy, near Tompkins Park? Or even just getting there a bit earlier and securing a parking spot and getting the kids out, not too big a venue for kids to run off out of sight.

Or just somewhere around the Applecross area, up on a hill, overlooking the city.

(btw I am referring to the fireworks in the city, rather than the Freo ones)
