What’s behind the lights?

Living in Southbank affords many residents a spectacular and sometimes unique view of the city skyline.

I’ve enjoyed seeing various buildings lit up for a variety causes, but I’d love to know if there’s a central reference to let the people of Melbourne know which causes the buildings in the city are lit up for. 

Many buildings were lit in blue to honour the four police members tragically killed in that terrible traffic accident a few weeks ago.

I found a website for the Bolte Bridge but haven’t been able to identify a single unifying source of information. 

Last week I saw two buildings (one of which was the Arts Centre) lit up in orange, but had no way of finding out the cause it was in aid of. Any information would be very welcome indeed.
