A pheasant/pleasant place

Vince needed a photo of something yellow for the latest photo challenge on one of his FB sites so we pulled into Gumbuya Park, a fun park where they had a huge yellow water-slide affair near their boundary fence. We parked in the car-park and he took his obligatory two dozen photos (that’s a joke) and as we drove out I took a photo of their entry statement which I presume is some sort of pheasant. Unfortunately I couldn’t get round far enough to get a better photo of the head. The park is set in bushland some 50 minutes from Melbourne. Their website says they have 52 species of wildlife and there is obviously a lot of rides there as well. We didn’t go in as it was quite late in the day and the prices were quite expensive for the use we would have had from them. But I’m sure it’s a popular place.

That's a pretty bird! I've noticed that you Australians sure love oversized statues and sculptures! Someday long into the future a new species of humanoids will discover Australia and think that the people of the 21st Century erected monuments to the gods! lol
Guybaya Park recently acquired new owners and has largely been rebuilt. Previously it was very run down, and the pheasant had been vandalized. The down side is that apparently there has been a huge jump in entry fees - probably to recoup the cost of the revamping.
