Eureka Tower is a 297.3-metre (975 ft) skyscraper located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is named after the Eureka Stockade, a rebellion during the Victorian gold rush in 1854. This has been incorporated into the design, with the building's gold crown representing the gold rush and a red stripe representing the blood spilt during the revolt. It was the world's tallest residential tower now 12th. (Click to see Botanical Gardens Government House immediate background)
