Swan Hill - The Giant Murray Cod




A giant Murray Cod outside the train station of Swan Hill is a monument to the big cod fish that had been caught in the river before irrigation and drought affected the river. Murray Cod is still present in the river today but not at the same numbers and sizes than it has been reported earlier in European settlement.

The fish is 11 metres in length and 6 metres wide, it was actually built as a move prop for a film called ‘Eight Ball’ and the locals liked it so much and found a home for it.

Cost:


Free to view.

Review:


The giant Murray Cod is located next to the Swan Hill train station. There are some information boards, shelter with BBQ and unshaded tables.

This is a cool town. I'm using it to do homework, because we are learning about The Murray, The Darling, and The Murray-Darling Basin. Thanks for the help!
