The Giant Kookaburra and Giant Koala's mission is to help people to regain their natural joy and care free laughter. 

These floats will be embarking on a journey around Brisbane's southside on their way to Southbank, as part of LUMINOUS in the Neighbourhood.  See the itinerary below!

if you catch the Giant Kookaburra and Giant Koala at Southbank, make sure you catch the Light Up Brisbane for LUMINOUS Bridge Lighting!

Each year, Dr Farvardin Daliri, OAM, Executive Director of the Townsville Intercultural Centre and founder of the Townsville Cultural Fest constructs these giant sculptures.  Farvardin has been awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his lifetime of service to the community development sector and for initiating projects and programs for a more cohesive and harmonious society.

The Giant Kookaburra was built in a Brisbane backyard during the height of the COVID-19 lock down and gained international media coverage including CNN, the New York Times, USA Today, BuzzFeed, as well as locally in Australia on ABC, The Guardian, Nine and many more.
