This massive roll of film can be perched above a camera shop in one of the main streets of Young.

Ah camera film... we remember that!

FISH 🐟 

LOCATION: Cowell (SA)

This fabulous fish was a very unexpected BIG THING discovery!

Constructed from wooden slats, this is one of three sea creatures that we found side by side in the seaside town of Cowell.

We can't find anything out about these sculptures BUT we do know that they are well worth a stop and a photo! Follow these links to discover the Big Mussel and the Big Crab.

FLOWERS 🌸   

LOCATION: Mackay (QLD)

There are quite a few Big Flowers planted here and there around Australia, BUT we think these two particular bunches are pretty spectacular! 

Called "Urban Bloom 1" and "Urban Bloom 2" these were created by Brian Robinson in 2015 — and are inspired by both the unique flora of the Mackay region as well as the truffula trees as created and illustrated by Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr Seuss).

FLOWER 🌸   

LOCATION: Ourimbah (NSW)

This flower was probably once fabulously majestic! But, at present, it is in desperate need of a little TLC!

A little repair and a lick of paint and we're pretty sure this giant flower could be a thing of beauty once again! (One day maybe...!)

...we're sure there must be more!

FORKS AND POTATOES 🍴 🥔  

LOCATION: On the Princes Highway between Yarragon and Trafalgar (VIC)

This BIG THING is a firm favourite amongst #TeamALPHABET. 

It's BIG. It's ART. And it's wonderfully unusual.

This sculpture was created in 2008 — the year of the potato (brilliant!) — to celebrate local agriculture, and (of course) the importance of spuds for the region.

FRED FLINSTONE  

LOCATION: Mackay (QLD)

Yabba dabba do! It's Fred Flinstone!

He is one of FOUR concrete monuments to be found in Old Mulherin Park (Mackay).

We don't know much about these sculptures, other than that they have all been around since at least the early '80s (and that they are beloved by locals).

FRILLED-NECK LIZARD 

LOCATION: Eulo (QLD)

We almost drove straight passed this fabulous BIG THING! (Fortunately one of our team needed a bathroom break...).

This filled-neck lizard can be found surveying the world from its lofty perch in the remote outback town of Eulo.

The town has a population of around 95, but swells to around 5000 during August / September — for the annual lizard racing event
