Little did I know, when I posted the budget travel post about The Big Avocado, that Australians have a fondness for big, goofy looking statues. I've since discovered that their continent is knee-deep in the things. Above is just a sample showing a gigantic mosquito, painting, chicken and banana.
If you're interested by such things, and who isn't, the website Australian Big Things is the resource for you. On it the big statues are indexed by name, location and type, as well as having some statistical breakdowns and a list of missing big statues he's trying to gather information about. The website also has a lot of pictures of the big statues.
