You'll find this smiling, work weary chap in the town of Roma in south
western Queensland. As you can see, he stands near the front entrance
of the 'Big Rig' complex.
He is a representative of the people - the engineers, field workers and
explorers - that were an integral part of the development of the oil and
gas industry in Australia. 'The Driller', in conjunction with the 'Big Rig',
celebrate the efforts and achievements of these hard working pioneers
of the industry. They are a part of the history of Roma, the town where
this country's oil and gas industry was born.

The Murray Bridge giveaway came and went before I saw it. That bridge carried the Adelaide - Melbourne railway for about 45 years. The railway curved into a cutting front & left of the posted view. It carries a sign 'First bridge over Murray River', which it wasn't. I have the notes somewhere, but I think that it was the fifth (Echuca 1, 2 & 3, Corowa 1 and Albury 1 beat it). It was the first in SA. As at 1930, there were only three in SA, and it took until the early 1960s to get the fourth. The late 1920s railway bridge at Murray Bridge is visible in a gap between the trees in the quiz photo.
I don't think that I can pick up on the new quiz; I am waiting for the big pineapple, big banana, big merino, big earthworm, big koala and big blowfly. There must be more.
