If I have to name one thing that distinguishes Australia and Australians from the rest of the world, it would have to be our weird sense of humour. It is self -deprecating  and we can laugh at ourselves and our surroundings. One of my favourite examples of this is our penchant for “BIG” things. We have numerous structures scattered all over the country, depicting a person, animal,fruit/vegetable or thing that has come to symbolise a particular area or region.These are a few of my favourites. They are so tacky that you just have to love them!!!

  2. Maureen,

    After an exhausting post, very emotional, the big banana and big guitar were exactly what I needed to see.

    Too funny. Someday, I hope to pose in front of some of your county’s biggies.
