There we have it. A big list of “big things” in Australia. There are actually close to 300 giant structures, but we’ve counted 165 different structures without doubling up. Turns out most states have a big apple. But the real question is: when is The Big Broccoli going to be built? It’s obviously one of the more superior vegetables. Hopefully one day.
