Pash Ya Later Pasha Bulker
Australia’s unusual love affair with the mighty Pasha Bulker is coming to an end. The 40,000 ton bright red freight ship has finally been moved off New Castles Nobby’s beach and out to see. For more then 20 days the ship has captured Australia’s attention with thousands of tourist flocking to Nobby’s beach to see the mundane ship now turned star of the seas. The difficult unearthing of the frigate is now done and the overexposed media attention begins to wine down. I am however sure that the Pasha Bulker will forever be remembered as the big red ship that invaded Aussies shores, obtained the nations admiration, and subsequently entered Australian pop culture forever.
