The Broken Beasts of Woolgoolga

The elephants of Woolgoolga make for an incongruous sight at the junction of the Pacific Highway and main street. They were built for a long closed Indian restaurant. Now they stand amongst broken glass, cigarette butts and moss; they look very angry as the heavy traffic rushes by.

They are building a by-pass of Woolgoolga and there is some talk of the Raj Mahal site becoming a supermarket. Whatever happens the fate of the elephants is not promising.

This is a My World Tuesday Post. Click here for more images from around the globe.


  1. It looks kind of sad. I guess the elephants will soon be gone.

  2. I guess no room for elephants in a supermarket!

  3. mmm ... not sure about this ... they were out of place to begin with ... and made of sprayed concrete, I guess. They certainly make a sad and sorry sight/site.

  4. They just don't make elephants like they used to! Are the giraffe's holding up better?!

  5. The lack of adventure, excitement & opportunity seems to me to be the cause of such vandalism. Such a pitty.

  6. Get rid of the ugly things. Woolgoolga's a great place and if these were gone it would be a major plus. The best of Woolgoolga is on the beachfront not the hwy. Drive in off the hwy and discover the best kept secret of the north coast.
