need a big bird that's native to Australia. I thought ostrich, but they are from Africa, kiwi (not so big) is New Zealand. What's an Australian bird? Emu?

There is a big Australian bird - the kapeweary or cappewary or something like that.  It's colorful (blue, red, purple skin), the size of an ostrich.

I'm really curious to see how large Australian birds fit into chapter 4, lol.  This is for chapter 4 I assume?

There's the Emu!  Like the ostrich but doesn't have the twisted habit of sticking it's head in the dirt!

The emu (we say ee-myoo, but in the US I believe they say ee-moo for reasons best known to yourselves) is native to Australia. The cassowary is native to Papua New Guinea and NE Australia. The moa - can be MUCH bigger - was native to NZ but is now sadly extinct.
