Skyfire is an annual event in Canberra, it happens in March every year along with Enlighten and the Balloon spectacular. Held over Lake Burley Griffin and seen all through Commonwealth park. It’s the place to be if you are a photographer. With numerous vantage points to capture your perfect shot. Mount Ainslie, Red Hill and Regatta Point are typical, with great backdrops like Lake Burley Griffin, and The Parliament houses all lit up with Enlighten, there is plenty to see and capture through the lens of your camera.
Skyfire displays over 40,000 individual fireworks, with Music to compliment the action, sponsored by the local radio station it’s free, so what more could one ask for.
During the day you will see hot air balloons a plenty, firing up in the early hours and taking off from the reflection ponds in front of Parliament house.
