Soon after the news reached Australians, people began to place flowers on the front steps of Parliament House, Melbourne.The location was suggested by a caller to talk-back radio.
After three days, the flowers covered the entire area of the steps, save for a roped-off walkway. After nine days, Parliamentary staff collected the cards and toys and cleared away the flowers. The flowers were composted and used to help establish a memorial garden in the grounds of Parliament House
