You may have seen the Big Pineapple or the Big Prawn, but what about the Big Bogan?
Australia’s latest big attraction is none other than the Big Bogan.
You may have heard of the Big Pineapple, or the Big Prawn, but the latest giant structure to be unveiled is the five-metre high statue of an
Aussie bogan. Located in the town of Nyngan in country NSW, in what surely isn’t a coincidence, falls within the Shire of Bogan.
Depicting a true blue Aussie Bogan, the statue is scarily accurate featuring details including a mullet, singlet, Southern Cross tattoo, esky, earring and some questionable facial hair.
With the idea originally put forward by Reverend Graham McLeod in April this year, the hope was the giant bogan would attract tourists to Nyngan, a small town with only 2000 residents.
Taking the concept of putting itself on the map very literally, the mayor of Bogan Shire Council, Ray Donald, said the response has been very good so far.
What do you think of Australia’s biggest new attraction? Will you be going to visit the Big Bogan when you’re next in NSW?
