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