This postal numismatic cover celebrates Aussie Big Things as part of Collecting Month 2023, and features the Giant Koala $1 coin.

The Giant Koala is located in the western Victorian town of Dadswells Bridge, 20km south-east of Horsham. Made in 1989 by Dutch sculptor Ben Van Zetten, it is composed of bronze and fibreglass supported by a steel frame. At 14 by eight metres, this massive structure is more a building than sculpture. Indeed, the interior, accessible through the Koala’s front forearms, houses a souvenir and gift shop.

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?
