So much to little time to see it all.

The 'Big Chook'

Australia is a land of Big Things. You know, like those enormous kitschy pieces of fruit like the Big Banana and the Big Pineapple. Then there's the oversized animals like the Big Prawn, Big Lobster and Big Merino.

There are more than 150 Big Things scattered around the country. They're more often than not big tourist traps for the unwary traveller.

But what about Sydney? Shouldn't Australia's number one tourist destination have the number one Big Thing?

Of course we have a big bridge and a big shell thing - but they are not the transparently tacky touristy magnets as characterised by the typical Big Thing, although some might disagree.

No, the only Big Thing I can locate is the 'Big Chook' out at Kemps Creek. It's certainly big. It's hard to miss after a recent coat of paint and its definitely tacky looking.

So do you know of a Sydney Big Thing? Where are Sydney's Big Things?
