'The story starts before the Giants, but at the heart of the story is the Little Giant Girl, a 6m high character who will explore the city, looking for The Diver. Long ago, the Little Girl Giant fell from the sky into the desert and was cared for by the Noongar people. It is also the story of an Australian Diver, 10,000 miles away and 100 years ago, sent to recover soldiers from the bottom of the sea off the coast of Gallipoli. Over time he becomes an 11m high Giant. The Little Girl Giant is given a storybook - Lighthouse Girl - about a girl in a lighthouse watching Anzac troops sail to war, and seeing images of Gallipoli, she realises she must sail across the desert to Perth to call the Diver Giant home. And so it is that 100 years after he sailed from Western Australia, the Diver Giant is lifted by a tornado of bubbles and is carried back to Perth.'
