A Griffith couple have wowed neighbours and passerbys with a stunning homemade Anzac Day display in their front garden.
Angelo and Diana Dal Broi have turned their garden into a heartwarming tribute to Anzac soldiers, complete with hand-crafted cut outs of eye-catching poppies and two model soldiers standing at attention.
The project became a pet hobby for the talented pair while stuck at home last year and it looks like it could become a yearly tradition.
"We started off by making some of the poppies last year, because we saw some of the great things people were doing because of there being no dawn service," Mrs Dal Broi said.
"This year we decided to go for something different, and that's when we got the idea to make the soldiers."
Mr Dal Broi puts together the models while Mrs Dal Broi, using her abilities as a folk art painter, adds the colour.
As well as being an enjoyable pastime for the pair the display has also proven popular with the neighbours.
"We have had a few people coming up to congratulate us on the display," Mr Dal Broi said. "They all seem to really like it. We even had one person who stopped in their car just to tell me it was 'ten out of ten mate'."
One mysterious passerby even admired the set up so much, they added some extra poppies to the centre of the display and disappeared without a trace.
The two have never created decorations for any other holiday or notable day, but they say the significance of Anzac Day sparked some extra imagination.
Mr Dal Broi, who once spent time in the national service, said "Anzac Day is just a special day - so it felt right".
"My Grandfather was in the war way back. I've got no medals of his or anything," Mr Dal Broi said.
"He was an Italian over in Italy and he was in a concentration camp ... he never spoke about it at all."
"So it's because of that history and it's because of COVID making it so we couldn't do anything last year that we did all this."
Mrs Dal Broi said they are thinking of adding a cannon to the display next year.
If you'd like to admire Mr and Mrs Dal Broi's display for yourself it can be found at 100 Wyangan Avenue, Griffith.
