The yellow beaked sculpture guarding the entrance is a crow : according to Tim Brady of the Codrington Wind Farm. To passing tourists, the sculpture is a beautiful icon.

It is a wind farm on the coast of south-western Victoria, near Yambuk. The Codrington site is close to perfect with strong prevailing winds blowing off the Southern Ocean. Completed in June 2001, the 14 wind turbines generate 51 GWh annually, for a capital cost of 30 million Australian dollars by Pacific Hydro, being the first fully private investment in a wind farm in Australia. When opened it was Australia’s largest wind farm and the first in Victoria. The wind farm now generates enough electricity each year to supply the equivalent of 10,000 Victorian homes and each year avoids the emission of 49,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions – the equivalent to taking more than 17,000 cars off the roads.

This wind farm is privately owned by the Crowe family, and is only open to pre-booked, group visitors.

When these man made towers are appropriately placed in mounts and glens, and when the blades are turning, on a fine day, better still set against a golden sunset, I reckon it is a virtuoso of Man and Nature in harmony.
