Pink and Grey is their colour and Galah, Rose breasted Cockatoo, Galah Cockatoo and Roseate Cockatoo are some of their names.Technically speaking Eolophus roseicapilla is another..One of the most wide spread of the Cockatoos they can be found all over Australia. They can be a very destructive and our weathervane shows them gnawing away at the arrow they are standing on. They are attractive and playful and can be trained to talk. They do get up to playful mischief and that is where the term, ” don’t be or act like a Galah” came from. This weathervane captures their antics beautifully
The balanced dimensions of this weathervane are 565mm wide. 330mm high. The special arrow is 690mm long and the directionals are 590mm wide.the overall height is 760mm.
How It Works
The arrow and figure revolve on a ball bearing over a stainless Steel Shaft. The weathervane is powder-coated and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black. These weathervanes are Australian Made.
A Stainless Steel mounting plate is available for fixing to the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a Stainless Steel gable bracket available (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.
Which one to use ?
Which one ?
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.
