Cockle Bay Wharf, Dancing Brolgas, fountain

The Dancing Brolgas fountain is located at the front of the Cockle Bay Wharf building at Darling Harbour. It was designed by Terrance Plowright and created in cast stainless steel in 1998. The Brolga is a native bird also known as the Australian Crane.

  1. Beautiful! I love this one! What exciting art to enjoy. This art is so much more enjoyable than some of the hunks and chunks of metal or concrete that pass for modern art.
