Meet Cranium! Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment’s 40 metre tower crane



Meet Cranium, the newly named 40 metre tower crane that graces the Goulburn skyline as part of the $150 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment. 

Congratulations to Alex, aged 6, from Wollondilly Public School. Alex is the winner of the Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment ‘Name the Crane’ competition. Alex has won $1000 of sporting equipment or books for Wollondilly Public School. 

In addition to the great name, Alex provided the following reason for suggesting Cranium, “The crane is building stuff to protect people. Just like a cranium does it protects people’s brains.”

The 40 metre tower crane will be officially named as part of a naming ceremony on the Redevelopment site in the coming month. Additional prizes will also be awarded for the best coloured entry, extra effort and 2nd and 3rd place getters with all prizes courtesy of the Redevelopment’s builder Hansen Yuncken.

The Name the Crane competition was open to all local primary schools and children of primary school age or capability in the Goulburn-Mulwaree and Upper Lachlan Shire Local Government Areas (LGAs), including those in the Paediatric Ward at Goulburn Base Hospital.
