A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Sunday, 10 January 2010


The Crocodile Hunter lives in our memories on the Esplanade in Mooloolaba, where a marble sculpture depicting himself with his two children Bob and Bindi holding a baby crocodile is positioned so that he is gazing out to sea in perpetuity.

This was his neighbourhood of course, and Australia Zoo continues to be bigger and better managed by his family, just a few kilometres inland.

The kisses aren't a permanent feature, young Robert and Steve received more than their fair share on New Year's Eve.

For more information you may care to visit the website of the sculptor, Silvio Apponyi.

Nice to see. I used to watch his show.

Mmm ... I am sure he raises mixed emotions outside his own 'hood.
