Gobble, gobble: Welcome to the town of the big turkey

ONE proud resident has put Kyogle on the map by immortalising a giant bush turkey for the town.

The 16-tonne 8.5m wide, 4m high and 200mm thick concrete statue was put up on Monday and cannot be missed as you head into Kyogle from Casino on Summerland Way.

The bush turkey is Kyogle man John Graham's long-time vision, creation and gift to the town.

"I've been wanting to do it for a few years and it feels great to finally get it up," Mr Graham said.

"I've lived here for all of my 66 years and spent my whole life with bush turkeys, I've always liked them."
