The city of Swan Hill is home to the Giant Murray Cod, a tribute to a legendary native fish. Fifteen metres long, three metres wide and five metres high, the steel and fiberglass structure is at once a symbol of civic pride, an inducement for tourist snaps and highlights awareness that numbers of this species, once common in the Murray–Darling River system, have been greatly reduced.
Aussie Big Things is a celebration of the great Australian road trip. And with more than 200 of these massive landmarks scattered across the country, tourists and locals are propelled to ‘tick off’ the Big Things as they drive throughout Australia. How many have you seen?
