Panorama of Reedy Creek with Cock's Dredge in Eldorado, Victoria, Australia. The sheer size of the dredge from 1936 is impressive, it was 64 metres long and 50 metres wide at its bow weighing a staggering 1880 tonnes. The dredge found its final resting place in a small lake that it had dug up itself.
