THE BIG THINGS OF AUS

Dotted around Australia are a fabulous collection of BIG THINGS...

...how many have you seen?

As #TeamALPHABET journey across Australia in 2022/2023, they have been on an epic odyssey to discover as many BIG THINGS as possible. 

What is a "BIG THING"? Well, we are still attempting to create a definitive answer to that question! BUT, in general, we're talking about large sculptures and public artworks that have been built to celebrate local identities, fruits, vegetables, fauna and other odd 'things'. The trait that all of these 'things' have in common is that they are demonstrably larger than their real world counterparts...

We have already discovered a large number of BIG THINGS in our travels — but we know there are many (many!) more out there.

To check out what we have discovered so far, click a letter below and you'll be taken to a page that celebrates BIG THINGS starting with that letter.

 

It's our Alphabet of Awesome BIG THINGS!

 

(There's 125 BIG THINGS on the list so far...!)
