THE BIG...

CIGAR 

LOCATION: Churchill (VIC)

This 32 metre tall 'spire' was built in Churchill in 1967 — just two years after the town was established..

Although the spire is almost always referred to as a "cigar", it wasn't built to look like one! It was simply built as a 'monument of interest'.

However, given that this golden spire kind of looks like a cigar and Sir Winston Churchill (the man after which the town was named) famously smoked cigars, the connection was quickly made, and the nickname has stuck...

CHICKEN 🐓 

LOCATION: Moonbi (NSW)

 

The little town of Moonbi is often referred to as the "poultry capital of NSW". What better way to celebrate that fact than with the construction of a marvellous fibreglass chook!?

 

We think this is PERFECT!

THE BIG...

CRAB 

LOCATION: Cowell (SA)

This big thing is a thing of beauty!

Constructed from wooden slats, this Big Crab is one of three sea creatures to be found in the seaside town of Cowell.

Stationed beside this remarkable artwork are a Big Mussel and a Big Fish (follow the links to discover these other wooden critters!).

THE BIG...

CUNNAMULLA FELLA 

LOCATION: Cunnamulla (QLD)

Larger than life, this fella dominates the remote outback town of Cunnumulla.

The Cunnamulla Fella is a song written by Stan Coster and sung by Slim Dusty — and this statue immortalises this titular archetypal bushie in stunning bronze.
