There are Big Things all over Australia. Not as in, uhm, just big things. Nope, UpperCase Big Things. As in The Big Merino, The Big Banana (“Australia’s Original ‘Big Thing'”), and even The Big Potato.
Before you even ask, yes, they are as weird as they seem. Nope, most of them don’t have any other purpose, although the BigMerino claims to be built for educational purposes, among other things.
Here’s a (non-official, i guess) website about BigThings. Even better is an ABC Special about The More Obscure Big Things.
