The Big Koala is at Dadswell bridge on the Western Highway between Horsham and Stawell and houses a souvenir shop. There is a licensed cafe next door. Daswell Bridge also has a motel and caravan park. Technically speaking, it's called the Giant Koala, - it is 14 metres high, weighs 12 tonnes and is made of bronze set on a steel frame.
The sculptor Ben Van Zetton designed and constructed the piece in 1988.
