AUSTRALIA IS THE HOME OF THE BIG .......

Just ask any Aussie Kid

They'll tell you their parents dragged them to see the big....

.... banana, prawn or even pineapple....

This is a site featuring some of the BIG's we've visited

In search of Australia's BIG things

Yes we Aussies have a habit of building BIG timber, plastic or steel replicas of our native animals and even our fruit and vegetables.

These are just a few photos of some of Australia's crazy big icons. The photos aren't in any particular order and we can't seem to recall where we saw some of these BIG things...

We would ride around a corner on a country road and there it would be. If you know the location... we'd love to hear from you.

We are missing a couple of real Aussie icons, like the big Merino Sheep at Goulburn as we passed through without the camera.

 

You all know........

banana

The Big Banana at Coffs Harbour

but have you seen........

mango

We think this rather large Mango was in Bowen in Queensland?

You have to understand that we do a lot of motorcycle trips and they tend to blend into one another after a while.

guitar

So we get home with strange photos and struggle to place some of these shots.

Ok, Ok we know this one...

TAMWORTH, Australia's home of Country Music where we find a giant Golden Guitar

koala

So here we were on a trip from Adelaide to Melbourne and in Victoria we found a Koala who looks so scary he could frighten small children!

lobster

And we think this Giant Lobster was Kingston S.E. in South Australia.

We ate fabulous lobster and oysters in that town so we're going with that location

Can't be sure of course, so if you know you can let us know

lure

We're thinking Mackay in Queensland for this fishing Lure

mower

On a back road somewhere near the Sunshine Coast in Queensland we think??

pineapple

Easy Peazy... this BIG pineapple is near Nambour in Queensland

prawn

Pretty sure this one is from Ballina in NSW

rockinghorse

We think we were in South Australia but can't remember exactly where...

telescope

OK so this isn't technical a BIG but it is BIG and very impressive. It's the Telescope at Parkes NSW

submarine

Now this may not strictly qualify as a BIG... but it was a surprise to find it in Henty NSW... a small inland town.

pub

And I know I'm stretching it with this one but... it must be the BIGGEST cartoon building in the world, mustn't it? Just North of Brisbane at AussieWorld.

We'll have to reserve some space for photos of the Big Merino [Sheep from Goulburn] and a few others we've missed....

rocks

If you know the location of any of those that we can't remember, feel free to send an email and we'll update the page
