The National Trust has listed this giant hammerhead crane to mark World Heritage Day today and wants the structure nominated as one of the country's top 10 endangered items. Built almost sixty years ago and capable of lifting loads of up to 250 tonnes, it is the largest dockside crane in Australia and dominates the foreshore near Woolloomooloo. It is now disused and at risk of falling apart and being pulled down.
