Deb’s ‘BIG THINGS’ road trip 2016

During the recent Easter school holidays, Library staff member Deb and her family set off on a road trip around Victoria with a mission: to see as many ‘big things’ as possible.

Decked out in their special ‘Big Things’ t-shirts, Deb’s family and three other families racked up thousands of miles to make it to 16 big Aussie icons.

Deb says: ‘Suffice to say with 8 kids and 8 adults in tow, our road trip was anything but boring!’
