Big Whale - Cockle Creek

We found another big thing that wasn't on our list, but I will add it now. Its also at the Southern Most point of Tasmania and also Australia. 

This life-size, 3month old southern right whale sculpture is a poignant reminder that whale calves once frolicked in this bay. Whaler harpooned calves first as their distress calls kept adults close. Little wonder that whaling almost wiped out the species altogether.
