Big Things in Australia

Share this page:

Everywhere you go around Australia, in both large and small towns, you are going to run into a peculiar Aussie tourist attraction: big things.

By this we mean: big, even HUGE, statues, of:

-- the locally grown fruit (the Big Banana; the Big Pineapple);
-- the locally grown
vegetable (the Big Mushroom);
-- the local animals (the Big Crocodile; the Big Merino; the Big Lobster);
-- the local manufactures (the Big Milkshake; the Big Wool Bales);
-- local historical characters (the Big Ned Kelly); or even
-- local everyday objects (the Big Meat Pie; the Big Stubbie).
