In Australia there is a whole list of big things to go and visit. There's the big pineapple in Queensland, the big avacado in Durandah, the big beer can in Cobar, basically they are giant sculptures or structures. See here for more info.
Well while we were away last we went to the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour. The kids had an absolute ball. Because it was holidays they had inflatable water slides set up, and after a week of camping in the rain, this was a wonderful escape.
