Are you following the Australian Big Thing trail? Australia’s biggest footy stands tall in the Bland Shire village of Ungarie. The 800 kilogram fibreglass replica Sherrin stands proudly in Bing Wallder Park 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. It is a unique photo opportunity for anyone travelling in and around the Bland Shire and a mecca for Essendon Football Club and AFL fans in general.
