On recent travels I came across this Leopard tank in the park at Rutherglen VIC.

There were also a number of other pieces of ordinance in the park.

And there's one in a park in McLaren Vale, South Australia.

By searching every public reserve in the country we should be able to equip a mechanised battalion.

Also in S.A., one sits on display in the grounds of Keswick Barracks, just south of Adelaide.
