If your a historian, expo offificiate or just like me have fond memories of Brisbane's Expo 88 you will appreciate the campsite setting that was originally one of the many Statuettes prominently located through the Brisbane Southbank Expo 88 site. The campsite scene has been recreated outside what was the Department of Primary Industries Building (DPI) in 80 Ann Street. As a long time DPI worker, some may say too long, there were plenty of bushfires put out within the DPI building also, but that's another story. Whilst the act of going to this Building every morning may not have been that joyous,it was always a welcome site to see these figurines camped by the footpath. Over the years they suffered a number of injuries including broken arms and noses and the fire being kicked out, but thanks to likes of Bruce Mayne and others they were always put back together again.They are still very popular with both kids, adults and tourist as they stroll through the city. You will also find a number of other statuettes scattered throughout the city especially in George Street where you will find an iconic kangaroo lying on a bus seat.
