Sidney Myer Music Bowl c.1969

The Sydney Myer Music Bowl(in Kings Domain Gardens) opened on 12th February 1959. Used as a live & concert venue. Occasionally used as an outdoor cinema(sitting on the grass accomodates 7,000 to 10,000). The Australian music group The Seekers played a concert in 1967 to an audience that estimated to be over 200,000 people(biggest concert in Australia?). Also has on Christmas Eve, the Carols by candlelight concert(Melbourne was the place in the World to have christmas carols by candlelight, starting in 1938, starting in Alexandra Gardens), moving to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 1959.
