THE BIG...

PIE 🥧  

LOCATION: Hamilton (VIC)

Very close to the theatre where #TeamALPHABET performed in Hamilton, we found this Big Pie!

We can also report that the baked goods at King's Bakery — under which which this beautiful golden pie can be found — were absolutely delicious!

THE BIG...

PINEAPPLE 🍍   

LOCATION: Woombye (QLD)

 

This Big Pineapple is one hundred percent a Queensland icon!

In fact, it's so iconic that in 2006 it was heritage-listed as a state icon by the National Trust!

 

This fabulous monument once stood out the front of a bustling 'tourist trap' — but now stands (a little embarrassed) beside a tiny coffee shop. We stopped and made sure we bought a fridge magnet for our growing collection... 

We are looking forward to some budding entrepreneur taking over the site in the future so this icon can rise again!

 

THE BIG...

PHAROAH

LOCATION: Buronga (NSW)

A little bit of Egypt in regional NSW?

It would seem so!

This anachronistic monument can be found outside the Edge Motel in Buronga (NSW) — where the restaurant is affectionately named after Tutankhamon.

THE BIG...

PHEASANT 🐦   

LOCATION: Tynong (VIC)

This Big Pheasant (a golden pheasant) stands proudly at the entrance to Gumbuya World.

This giant bird is almost as old as Professor Noel Edge! It was erected in 1978, while Noel was born in, well... he'd prefer we didn't tell you the exact year!

THE BIG...

PRAWN 🦐 

LOCATION: Ballina (NSW)

FUN BIG PRAWN FACT #1

The Big Prawn is 30,000 time larger than a real prawn.

FUN BIG PRAWN FACT #2

This monument was built in 1989 — without a tail! The tail was added in 2013 at a cost of $400,000!

FUN BIG PRAWN FACT #3

This fantabulous prawn was designed by sculptor James Martin — who had previously worked on Taree's Big Oyster.

We could keep adding facts about this fascinating prawn... BUT we're running out of room!
