Ballina's Big Prawn is another of Australia's iconic big things. Built-in 1989, the Big Prawn underwent a makeover and was reopened in July 2013. A new paint job and a new tail!

The Big Prawn stands nine metres high and weighs 35 tonnes. The restoration cost to add a tail and give the prawn a much-needed makeover cost Bunnings AUD400,000 in 2013.

The giant crustacean is available for public viewing (and photos) at all hours of the day and night.

Come see another of Australia's big things, and while here, grab your own fresh catch from one of the seafood stores on the opposite side of the road.
