The Big Cow is located just north of Nambour and was built by Hugh Anderson in 1976 – he’s the guy who is responsible the Big Bulls of Rockhampton. The Big Cow is made of cement, stands 15 metres high, is 7.6 metres long and weighs around 10 tonnes. It was originally built to attract tourists to a working dairy farm.
It currently stands out the front of an old training centre for the marine, mining and disability industries. The property went up for auction recently so we’re excited to see what will happen to the Big Cow next.
