The Big Football
Australia's biggest Football was unveiled in March 2018 in the Bland Shire village of Ungarie with approximately 2000 people in attendance to mark the prestigious occasion.
The 800 kilogram fibreglass replica Sherrin stands proudly in Bing Wallder Park in Wollongough Street as a permanent tribute to Ungarie and Australia's most famous footballing family - the Danihers.
Ungarie born and bred Terry, Anthony, Neale and Chris Daniher are legends of Australian football and to this day remain as the only set of four brothers to step onto the field together in an AFL/VFL premiership match. Between them they played a total of 752 Premiership games for Essendon and Sydney.
The construction of the football was led by the Ungarie Advancement Group and local community and delivered by Bland Shire Council in conjunction with Triple M Rocks Footy.
Significant funding support was also received from the NSW Government.
It is a unique photo opportunity for anyone travelling in and around the Bland Shire and a mecca for Essendon and Australian football fans in general.
Soaring above the skyline in the historic Bland Shire village, it is the latest addition to Australia's list of Big Things!
Located in Ungarie's Bing Wallder Park, the spectacular 800 kilogram fibreglass Sherrin football created by Andy Gordon stands on a five metre pedestal proclaiming "Ungarie NSW, home of the Danihers."
The Big Football is an Ungarie Advancement Group project which was managed by Bland Shire Council in partnership with Triple M Rocks Footy.
Additional generous support was provided by the NSW Government and NSWACT AFL.
It is well worth the short 42km drive to Ungarie to visit the iconic artwork and of course capture a great photo op with the stunning one of a kind monument. The largest of its kind in Australia
