The Berkeley Prawn

The recently refurbished prawn sculpture in the Wollongong suburb of Berkeley is a colourful addition to the streetscape .Many of the tiles adorning the work have been made by local schoolchildren . Berkeley hugs the beautiful Lake Illawarra where tiny sweet prawns are plentiful and perfect when making Spanish fritters of Tortillitas de Camarones or Indian curries.
2017 update: RIP the Berkeley prawn sadly removed because of O H & S issues.
