We Aussie Love "Big Things".....

We Aussies seem to have a love of "big" things, as tourist attractions in our towns. The very first one was the "Big Banana" which was erected outside the Gift Shop of a Banana plantation in Queensland. It is 5 metres high and 11 metres long. I think the idea must be that you are driving along, see this whopping great thing, and decide you must have to stop and have a look. Do any other countries love to have "big things" as tourist drawcards? We have lots here in Australia, and I shall show you some more over the next couple of weeks. Some of them are just plain weird!!!!

Hi Christine,

I remember seeing the big pineapple up in Queensland, many years ago.

Funny how they want to make everything big.
Over here we have the big Ohakune carrot, Te Puke's big kiwi fruit and
a large bottle of Lemon and Paeroa in Paeroa. There are others, around the Country also.
