Flower fanatics are flocking to Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens to witness a rare, but somewhat unpleasant event this holiday season. 

A spectacular Sumatran flower reached full bloom on Christmas night.  The Amorphophallus Titanium flower will only do so for a couple of days in its six year life.  Nicknamed "The Corpse Flower" it gives off quite the smell.
