Wonthaggi - BIG Vundu

72 BIG Fish from the 2006 Commonwealth Games | BIG Vundu

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.

This BIG Fish is the Vundu. It's native to the United Republic of Tanzania and is located at the 
Bass Coast Specialist School in Wonthaggi. 

Unfortunately this isn't a public Sculpture and you will need to time your visit. I tried snapping a picture through the fence but I arrived in the morning and the sun glare made for a horrible photo.
To grab a decent photo you will need to approach the office and be guided through the facility to the yard. The staff were awesome about my request. Don't be shy with asking. I know of two people who have also been given permission upon asking.
