Have you heard about big things in Australia?

No?

As the name implies, big things are big structures created mainly to attract visitors to nearby tourist spots or to represent a speciality in that region.

A drive from Melbourne to Perth will give you an opportunity to look at some of the big things in Australia.

Some are really good and worth visiting. Some are crap, to be honest.

I have arranged them in order of their presence from Melbourne to Perth. Hence, it should be easy for you to follow.

Here you go.
