WATERMELON 🍉   

LOCATION: Chinchilla (QLD)

How brilliant is this Big Watermelon??? We discovered this in Chinchilla — the "melon capital of Australia"!

This fabulous fruit was unveiled in 2018, and was actually the prize in a competition run by Wotif.com — as part of their 18th birthday celebrations.

#TeamALPHABET is not quite sure whether this beautiful humpback monument is a Big Thing or not — given that it's probably actually about the right size?

We certainly believe it belongs on this list though. It's BIG and it's BEAUTIFUL!

"Nala" was unveiled in 2012 — and is named after a humpback that has been visiting the area since 1992.

We almost drove straight past this monument BUT fortunately one of us needed as bathroom break — and this was our serendipitous reward!

WIND CHIMES  

LOCATION: Wellington (NSW)

This is one of #TeamALPHABET's favourite BIG THING discoveries — it really is a spectacular work of art!

Officially known as the "Wellington Gateway Sculpture", this monument is layered with meaning that celebrates the history and culture of Wellington and the surrounding areas. 

We thoroughly recommend a visit to this beautiful monument — there's a lot to explore!
