A large example of Australia's strange obsession with 'big' things stands between the main beach and shopping strip of this pretty town on Tasmania's north coast. The 3m-high penguin signals the fact that this part of the coast is where the world’s smallest penguin (Eudyptula minor) comes ashore during its breeding season. Many people head here to see these cute critters in the flesh (in the feather?), but the vibrant cafe culture and safe, sandy beach in the town centre are even greater attractions.
