Sheep farmer, Hanna Marriott, celebrated Australian Day by laying out food for her sheep in the shape of the national flag and the word, "OZ" - a slang term sometimes used for the country Australia.

Although a day late for Australia day, which falls on the 26th of January, as many as 1030 sheep were used to make the creation of the giant Aussie flag.

The woolly creatures followed a vehicle that left barley and lupin behind it as it drove.

Marriott was happy to turn the mundane chore of feeding the sheep into something different to get into the Australian spirit.

Australia Day is celebrated annually on 26 January, marking the the arrival of the first fleet of convict ships from Britain in 1788. The date now celebrates contemporary Australia and its vibrant society, landscape and culture.
