The whale statue in Her­vey Bay, Queens­land.

We came across this photo of a strik­ing whale statue made from tim­ber erected in a Queens­land town known for its whale watch­ing. We asked our au­di­ence whether they would like to see some­thing sim­i­lar in Al­bany.

I love it and think it would look great in the town square. Chris­tine Be­van

Get the lo­cal guy to make one, he is a bril­liant wood sculp­tor. Den­nis Ward

Don't need sculp­tures to bring peo­ple, just bet­ter roads and bet­ter park­ing for the trav­ellers' ve­hi­cles. Val Whit­ing

Yes. Along with paint­ing the si­los at the port with art­work. It would im­prove the look of the area. Brenda McInnes

Amaz­ing sculp­ture. Love to have some­thing sim­i­lar prob­a­bly near the AEC. Kevin McCre­ton

Al­bany has in­cred­i­ble nat­u­ral beauty which the au­thor­i­ties are de­ter­mined to keep block­ing from view with man-made ob­jects. No, Al­bany does not need a whale sculp­ture! A very silly idea. Colleen Dono­van

Can we please make it a mo­torised pod of baby pygmy whales and you can pay a cou­ple of dol­lars to get on and ride them? Cal­lum Dow­ell

I think we need to fix our roads first. A lot of roads need re­pair­ing around town and we have a lot of gravel roads that need bi­tu­men. Tony De­marteau
