In the tradition of Australian "big things" pictured is the 11 metre long Big Murray Cod in Swan Hill. While Murray Cod are capable of reaching more than 1 metre in length and reportedly the record for the largest caught was 1.8m and 113kg, cod of anything near this size have become much rarer since European settlement.

The Big Murray Cod was originally constructed as a prop for the film "Eight Ball" before landing in its current position as a tourist attraction just adjacent to the Swan Hill Railway Station.
