Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Ballandean Pyramid with additional information or photos.
Standing about 45 feet tall, the stone pyramid folly of Ballandean was built of local granite chunks left over from a construction project.
Said to be the result of a local man asking the property owner what he planned on doing with the rock debris, the 7,500 tons of rock were moved with a dump truck and excavator over the course of eight months.
The pyramid is on private property but can be admired from the street.
