Australia is going red as some of our well-known buildings and landmarks including the MCG and AAMI Stadium in Melbourne, Brisbane’s Story Bridge, Sydney’s Bankwest Stadium, Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville, the National Carillon, Canberra, Trafalgar Bridge, Perth and many more light up red for World Haemochromatosis Week. Even the Big Banana at Coffs Harbour will switch colour for us. You can find a full list on our website here.
