Photo of the Day: Rubber Duck in Sydney Harbour

It’t bath time in one of Sydney’s most iconic locations. This 50-foot rubber duck is seen here floating in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, best known for it’s views of the Opera House, in preparation for a festival this weekend which organisers say will turn the harbour into a “giant bathtub”.

“People will see it from the highway, will see it from the harbour, it’s five storeys high, and it’s just a very quirky way to say ‘the festival is on, please join us in the party'”, Sydney Festival director Lieven Bertels said.

The rubber duck, designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, is made out of PVC material and took three weeks to make, according to Sydney Festival officials.
