LOCATION: Eumundi (QLD)
This Big Girl has a very serious message.
This sculpture was built as a thank you to all those people who lost their innocence fighting in wars — so that the majority of us could keep ours.
It's a beautiful, thought-provoking sculpture.

LOCATION: Narrandera (NSW)
This Big Guitar is not only BIG, it is also PLAYABLE! (Although it is desperately in need of a tune...).
We discovered this fantastic stringed instrument in the picturesque town of Narrandera at the Visitor Information Centre. It was built by Robert Palmer in 1988 (taking over 300 hours...) to celebrate the local Country Music Club.
