On our way to The Great Ocean Road, we stumbled upon this great giant lobster. As far as we could tell, the lobster exists solely so this little town could be known for its big lobster. For whatever reason, Australia is filled with big things – a giant banana, a huge rocking horse, a big sheep. The list could go on and on. In fact, it does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia%27s_big_things

Seeing the lobster was truly a life changing experience for Beth and I. It ALMOST surpassed the time we got to see THE WORLD’S LARGEST FRYING PAN in Rose Hill, North Carolina. No I’m not kidding (about the frying pan, maybe about the life changing experience).

How interesting! How tall is the lobster? And we thought the Allen’s “biggest rocking horse” at the Bud Barn was large! I wonder if people try to climb the lobster, how it is cleaned and how often. Thanks for posting the web site, too.

It says the lobster is 17m x 15m so I guess it is about 50 feet tall. I have no idea how often it is cleaned haha.

What in the world?!?! That is one wild lobster! A lot bigger and more interesting than “the princess” in Pocahontas and the big duck in Mallard! And that Wikipedia list could probably win Guinness’ record for the most really big things in one country! ;-) Like Clara, I thought the Bud Barn’s huge rocking horse was maybe the largest in the world . . . but this one clearly takes the prize!
