Australians will get up close and personal with their breakfast on Sunday when 15 cows and a football field’s worth of turf take over the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a picnic. The cows and grass are part of “Breakfast on the Bridge,” an event that showcases regional produce. Ticketholders will be allowed to get their milk directly, uh, from the source.

''For some people that come from the city, it's going to be an eye-opener that milk comes out of an actual cow and not a carton,'' said one farmer.
