Melbourne, Vic. Bunjil is a well known 25-metre eagle sculpture in Docklands. The sculpture by Bruce Armstrong is a Docklands landmark (2002), was inspired by Bunjil, the eaglehawk regarded as the spirit creator of the Kulin nations, which include the Wurundjeri people. Bunjil will have to be moved to make way for a new building, no easy task. The cement slab supporting the structure is thought to weigh 90 tonnes.
