Travelling around Australia is a big adventure… but it’s a little-known fact that there are 150 “Big Things” to see along the way.

One passionate sport teacher, ‘Budgy Smuggler’ and dedicated Australian Made logo supporter by the name of Cameron McKenzie, spent his summer break on quite possibly the most ‘Aussie’ mission since Darryl Kerrigan set out to save his house from being flattened by an airport runaway…

To pay a visit to all 150 “Big Things” in his Australian Made Budgy Smuggler togs and take a portrait photo.

From “The Big Banana” in Coffs Harbour, to “The Golden Guitar” in Tamworth and “The Big Spud” in Robertson, McKenzie has been spotted in his Aussie Made swimwear all over Australia, sharing his journey to social media along the way.

General Smuggling Manager, Brenden Hartmann and the team from the Manly office, even congratulated the young lad on his Aussie quest:

“What’s really hitting for us is our own Chief Smuggler Adam had a crack at seeing most of the “Big Things” on the eastern side of the country (a long time ago now)… so this one resonates with us.”

“We love to see our supporters sharing snaps of themselves enjoying their favourite pair of smugglers in the sun, down at the beach… or even in front of The Big Prawn!”

“I just heard there was some big things in Australia and that seemed like a good enough reason to begin doing road trips. I also happened to have an enjoyment towards Budgy Smugglers. So, began roads trips and photos in front of them in Budgys,” sport teacher, Cameron McKenzie said.

“I did a bit of research. Then along the way not only do you get to see some icons of Australia you can also see some hidden gems. For example, coastal towns, country towns, landscapes a plenty. Australia is so vast and so unique and being able to travel around it is good for the soul!”

At the time of writing McKenzie had visited more than 30 of Australia’s beloved, splendorous fiberglass sculptures and is determined to visit them all in holiday breaks to come. Who said school teachers get too many holidays?

Stay tuned. We’ll be sure to update you again when McKenzie reaches the ~big~ (pardon the pun) 150th milestone sculpture.
