Australia is a big country with a fondness for Big Things – super-sized sculptures commemorating everything from prawns and pineapples to native animals and Ned Kelly. You'll find them all along the spectacular Pacific Coast Touring Route, which stretches all the way from Sydney to Cairns. Weave through the Hunter Valley, Byron Bay, the glittering Gold Coast and see the World Heritage-listed wonders of Fraser Island and Great Barrier Reef. Stop to snap the Big Banana, a giant gumboot, a herculean pelican and many more larger-than-life monuments along the way.  Whether you consider them highway art or just humorous, the Big Things are worth spotting on this stunning Australian road trip.
