Title:  Big Murray Cod
About:
Elizabeth McLaurin writes: The Murray Cod (or Fish if you are a local) has been living in Tocumwal since the mid 1960s - the first BIG THING in the country (I hope this doesn't spark a BIG debate). It was the brainchild of 3 women who raised the money for it through raffles, street stalls, dances etc. It had a major overhaul in 2000, due to a few bullet holes and cracked fins, plus all those years it was actually painted in Trout Cod colouring. It is now the real thing! It is 7 metres long, made of fibreglass with a steel frame, and is situated on the Foreshore Park next to the Murray River.
