 The Australian big things rd trip came about after hearing that a lot of our road side icons were being dismantled. I set myself a goal to see 10 of the "big" things before they vanish in one trip. 

This is what we saw.


singleton, sundial (actually largest in world at time)

muswellbrook, big blue heeler

tamworth, the golden guitar of course!

moonbi, the big chook, the area was once known for its poultry

uralla, the big soldier (the museum it's attached to is closed now and the soldier will prob disappear soon to)

guyra, the big lamb (area is known for its lamb)

coffs has 3 big things the banana of course but also the windmill and bunch of bananas

kew, the big axe (once a town built from logging industry)


Was fun to see some more of aus and enjoy some road side produce and classic road trip food along the way. Stayed in a great pub on way home at Macksville.
