Workers along Melbourne's Bourke Street Mall recall their terror at seeing pedestrians run down by a speeding car.
One year after Melbourne's deadly Bourke Street car rampage, shop worker Vic Hook can't forget the sound of pedestrians being hit, people screaming and seeing bodies on the ground.
"It was just the noise, that's the main thing I remember ... it sounded like gun shots and it was very loud," she told AAP ahead of Saturday's one-year anniversary of the car attack.
"Obviously after, we put it together that that was him hitting people across the street ... and then we heard the gun shots that stopped him."
Alleged driver Dimitrious Gargasoulas is accused of killing six people and injuring dozens more along the CBD shopping strip on January 20 last year.
Sam Harun, at a nearby street kiosk, saw the car turn down Bourke Street, and he is still taking medication for anxiety and panic attacks.
"I was here. I saw everything," he said.
"The car turned left on Bourke (Street) Mall. Everyone was running away ... and it started hitting people.
"I don't want to remember because it's very scary."
Another Bourke Street convenience store worker, who didn't want to be named, saw a woman being struck.
"The car was very fast and she was on the windscreen and she screamed," he said.
He's been forced to take months off work because of the trauma.
Premier Daniel Andrews said the horrific crime shook the state and victims' lives would never be the same.
"I also remember the bravery of our emergency services and the ordinary everyday Victorians - who in the most unthinkable carnage showed the most amazing courage," he said in a statement.
A private memorial service was held for the Bourke Street victims and their families in Melbourne on Saturday, ahead of a public event on Tuesday.
Matthew Si, 33, was killed after having lunch with his wife.
Sydney insurance worker Jess Mudie, aged 22, 33-year-old Bhavita Patel and 25-year-old Japanese man Y. Kanno were also among the dead.
The youngest victims were three-month-old Zachary Bryant and Thalia Hakin, aged 10.
The Year 5 student went to Melbourne's Beth Rivkah College, where Rabbi Yehoshua Smukler said she was remembered for her "brightness and grace".
"Seeing the family healing and recovery from the physical wounds and attempting to return to a normal life, although the emotional wounds and loss will always remain, is a stark reminder of the tragedy," he said in a statement on Friday.
Gargasoulas last year pleaded not guilty to 39 offences, including six counts of murder and 28 of attempted murder.
His case is due to return to court on March 2.
