Alexander Bunyip is a character from the popular 1972 children's book, The Monster that Ate Canberra by author and illustrator, Michael Salmon. In what became a series of books the bunyip is portrayed as a bemused adventurer who comes up with some novel uses for Canberra’s iconic landmarks. Anne Ross playfully shows the bunyip with his trusty travel case in hand heading out from a day in the national triangle.

Cast by Perrin Sculpture Foundry.
