Happy Australia Day! Celebrate big...

In a previous post I mentioned the big icons in Australia. Here are some I recently visited!

This is the Giant Avocado; it's found in Tweed Heads in New South Wales, outside of Tropical Fruit World and directions are here.

Apparently this used to be "Avocadoland"!

This is Larry the Lobster who is about 18 metres tall. He can be found in Kingston S.E. in South Australia, along the Princes Highway.

Unfortunately the restaurant was closed when we were there so we couldn't try the apparently delicious seafood there.

This is the Giant Koala; it can be found along the Western Highway (between Melbourne and Adelaide) at Dadswell's Bridge.

It's 14 metres high and made out of cold cast steel.

Maybe it's like in "War of the Worlds" when the aliens sent their machines to hide in the earth and one day, these big icons will come alive. (Or it could be another one of these close to 40C days playing with my imagination!)

    Haha - I have a photo of me standing in front of the Giant Koala a few years back. Love it! But the lobster is my favourite.
