In 1987 Greg designed numerous characters and solarpunk flying machines for the Australian Bicentennial First state 88 exhibition in Sydney’s Darling harbour. It holds the record for most public visits to a temporary exhibition in Australia.
Greg’s designs were constructed as larger than life working models on a moving track with  animatronic animal pilots.
Accompanying the exhibit, Greg wrote and illustrated the kid’s book “Echidna Airways:  The Great Wungle Bungle Aerial expedition”  whch has sold well over 60,000 copies and is due for it’s fourth reprint.
Greg has since revisited this work and has developed numerous new story episodes and developed the concept of an animated TV  and feature program based around the characters. The Computer generated versions seen here were first created in 1999.
The CGi models are presently being updated using more sophisticated software

Greg’s exhibition and 1987 book introduced the characters known as the “Koala Brothers “  with their flying 18ft Skiff to the Wungle Bungle outback airstrip.  Greg’s original concept of the adventures of a group of altruistic aviators and their outback airstrip was “borrowed” by a later TV series with the same name as Greg’s characters “The Koala Brothers”.
 Greg’s TV pitch proposal was shown in 1999 to that series’ producers who emerged with a similar concept years later.
