Summary

Location: Children's Pond, Queen Victoria Gardens

John Olsen, one of Australia’s most significant and accomplished artists, has created a super-sized frog, cast in bronze and towering more than two metres tall. 'Frog' is a remarkable sculpture that draws attention to the fragility of our environment and the essential role that frogs play as bio-indicators of a healthy and strong environment and society – when the frogs are singing so is the community.
