Whale carcass washes up on remote beach

IT WAS a sad end to a majestic creature washed up on the beach just north of Broadwater National Park overnight.

Lawrence Orel of National Parks and Wildlife said the whale was in a remote section of that area of the coast.

"It is estimated to be about 10 metres long," he said.

"We can't confirm what type of whale it is at this stage."

There were obvious marks on the whale which indicated it had been fed on by other sea creatures.
