Ballandean, Australia

Ballandean Pyramid

A huge stone pyramid built for fun. 

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.
