Rundle Mall - Rundle Mall Pigs by 


“Rundle Mall is home to a bronze sculpture of a group of life-sized pigs, officially known as ‘A Day Out’ by Marguerite Derricourt. The sculpture is landmark 3 on the Rundle Mall Discovery Trail.

The four pigs – Truffles (the standing pig), Horatio (the sitting pig), Oliver (the pig at the bin) and Augusta (the trotting pig) – are depicted in lively poses as if they were walking the street, greeting shoppers, and sniffing out a bargain.

They were commissioned by the Adelaide City Council as part of the final phase of the last upgrade of Rundle Mall.

The group sculpture was unveiled by the former Lord Mayor, Dr Jane Lomax-Smith, on 3 July 1999. A public competition was run to name the pigs.”

I believe these pigs are to stay but will be relocated.
