Is this still a game about guessing a location?

If yes, is it at your home?

No to museum or stuffed dead fish.

Yes it is a statue.

Jube, you're insufferable.

No it isn't in a display case but yes it can be related to travel and sport fishing.

Yes to P'ter, it is at Swan Hill so no to east coast. It's the big fish statue of a Murray Cod. One of those things you photograph when travelling. We've been to the big Koala and there's a big rolling pin in one of the towns close to us. Plenty of BIG things around Australia promoting stuff. Well done P'ter.

I'm glad other countries mark their towns with an icon particular to the district!

We have a carrot, kiwifruit - and in Springfield, a donut was put up in honour of the Simpsons which the locals insisted on keeping
