Smiley Peace Train Road Trip - BIG THINGS

Dylan's cancelled school camp was the motivation for hitting the road this school holidays. He really wanted to get out and about and see the bigger things in Australia. So we loaded up the "Smiley Peace Train" as the kids called my car and headed down the coast of New South Wales. The Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo was our final destination however we had lots planned to see on the way.

It started pouring with rain but that didn't stop us and first on our hit list of big things was "The Big Prawn" located at the southern entrance to Ballina in New South Wales.
From there we headed further south until we reached Coffs Harbour where we found "The Big Banana".
Quite a few towns across Australia create something BIG that embodies what they are about to attract tourists. Click HERE to find out about more of AUSTRALIAN BIG THINGS.
The kids found this huge tree log at The Big Banana which was not a part of our official Big Things List, but it was one of the biggest trees they'd ever seen.
The next day we headed inland from Coffs Harbour and found another big thing in Tamworth, the country music capital of Australia -the Big Golden Guitar.
