This is a colour photograph of several men with long-handled flensing knives removing blubber from a whale's carcass as it lies on the flensing deck of the Tangalooma Whaling Station at Moreton Island in Queensland. The men do not appear to be wearing safety equipment and are dressed in work clothes. Several people look on in the foreground and on the left. The roofs, chimneys and clouds of steam of the factory processing the whale blubber can be seen in the background.
