Larry The Red Big Lobster

A massive metal lobster welcomes tourists to a roadside restaurant

19

Australia has a long and diverse history of over-sized monuments, and The Big Lobster in Kingston, Australia is one of the most impressive of these landmarks.

Known locally as "Larry," the steel crustacean stands 17 metres high, 15 metres long and 13 metres wide. The giant lobster has changed hands a number of times since its construction in 1979 and the site currently features a restaurant, tourist center, and incongruously, a wine tasting area. The Big Lobster is one of Australia's largest kitsch monuments and its slowly fading paint seems to just make it more lifelike.
