Emus are an important cultural icon of Australia. One appears on the coat of arms along with a Kangaroo. They are farmed for meat, oil and leather. They are a flightless bird and grow to 2metres in height. they can cover great distances at a fast economical trot and , if necessary, sprint at 50 km/h. Their long legs allow them to take strides of up to 275cm.
As the emu charges along the arrow he is 330mm long and 295mm high. The arrow is 700 mm long and the overall height is 625mm This weathervane is Australian made.
How It Works
Both the arrow and the pelican figure revolve on a ball bearing over a solid bushed stainless steel shaft. Well balanced and proportionally correct these Australian made weathervanes from Glenview Products actually work. The weathervane is powder-coated and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
A stainless steel mounting plate is available for fixing to a flat surface such as the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a steel gable bracket available for fixing to the apex of the gable (see Fixing Brackets). If you would like to order a fixing bracket to suit this product, please select from the product options above. Fixing brackets ordered with an Aussie Weathervane will not incur any additional delivery charges.

Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. Suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. Because the shaft extends down the face of the Gable, it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.
Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.
