1997: Sydney's Syrang

Sydney's North and South Head both form a wonderful natural gateway to Sydney Harbour, but Malcolm Goldfinch in early 1997 proposed a large boomerang be built at Pigs Reef off Middle Head to act as Sydney's equivalent of New York's Statute of Liberty. Good idea or bad idea?

I for one feel that there was no need for a structure to welcome people to the harbour. Let nature be the gateway. What do you think?
