Hamilton - Tiger Fish

72 BIG Fish from the 2006 Commonwealth Games | BIG Tiger Fish

One of seventy-two large aquatic sea creatures created by MotherWorks for the opening ceremony of the 2006 Commonwealth Games. 

For every country that competed in the Games an aquatic sea creature, native to that country was created and floated across 36 barges down the Yarra River in an amazing sound and light display

After the Commonwealth Games concluded 62 of the sculptures were offered to councils through out Victoria to boost tourism. Many of the sculptures found permanent homes and sadly, since the sculptures weren't designed for the outdoor elements, between the Yarra River and councils placing them outdoors, many sculptures perished.

Another easy Sculpture. The BIG Tiger Fish is found in the Foyer so no need to venture past the reception desk. A quick photo and I was out of there. The Tiger Fish is located at the Hamilton Indoor Leisure & Aquatic Centre and is native to Botswana.

Hamilton is home to a fair few BIG Things. The BIG Pie, BIG Wool bales and the Bilby at the local Hotel. Be sure to check out the Hamilton TAG for more locations while you're in or researching the area.
