 All you need is a ladder, a pair of pliers & some courage. 
 There are still some PG posters nailed about 3 metres up on 
 telegraph poles in his electorate. This has been a 
 contentious issue on Sydney talkback radio, as it is illegal 
 to display such posters after an election. 
 The right wing talkback hosts are having a field day with 
 this, claiming that PG should practice the Greenie policies 
 he preaches & remove the "offensive" posters immediately. The 
 recent wet weather is being blamed for the delay in removing 
 the posters.
 The irony is that the PG's Liberal opponent has just as many 
 of his posters still up as well.
 I guess you could try his electoral office - they may have 
 some left over ?

 Yep mine too. I remember they had a giant version of this 
 poster at the Sydney Ent Centre during the BSM concerts in 
 1990. It was huge. They still have a smaller version there as 
 part of the poster archives around the foyer.
 Another one i liked was the massive billboard along the M4 
 motorway heading west towards Parramatta. It was the yellow 
 giant hand and was advertising the gig at Parra Leagues 
 (which turned out to be their last ever Sydney show) back in 
 2002  It would have measured  close to10 metres wide by 4 metres high
