'A Day Out' – The Rundle Mall Pigs

On 3 July 1999, Rundle Mall welcomed four new residents —Horatio, Oliver, Truffles and Augusta. Made completely from bronze, these life-sized pigs look to be having a great day out in Rundle Mall as they walk the Mall, dig through the bin for food scraps and greet passers-by.

The art installation officially known as 'A Day Out' was created by Marguerite Derricourt, the winner of a national sculpture competition instigated by City of Adelaide in the final stages of the Rundle Mall upgrades in the late 1990s.

The people of Adelaide loved the pigs so much, a competition was held to name them and you can find a plaque next to each pig stating its name and the name of the person who gave them that name.

Children and adults alike are often seen hugging, sitting on and posing for pictures with the popular pigs on their days out in Rundle Mall.

Bonython Hall is a centre stone of the University of Adelaide campus and is hard to miss when walking down North Terrace.
