FULL LIST: Where to find giant Laughing Kookaburra in Rocky

A GIANT laughing kookaburra will on Thursday make its much-anticipated pit stop in Rockhampton as part of its final quest to reach North Queensland.

Created by Brisbane-based artist Farvardin Daliri, the metal sculpture was initially constructed as a key piece to feature in next week’s Townsville Cultural Festival.

However, it has since caused quite the online fanfare, prompting Mr Daliri to commence an almost month-long statewide tour.

The impressive piece of art will travel across Rockhampton in a bid to greet the many Central Queenslanders eager to cast an eye on it.
