The massive 13-metre-long Big Banana is situated in an amusement park and banana plantation on the Pacific Highway, just north of Coffs Harbour, New South Wales. Opened in 1964, the Big Banana was one of Australia’s first Big Things and remains one of the most photographed objects in the country. Built by Alan Harvey using timber-framed ferroconcrete, it was the brainchild of John Landi, who travelled to Australia from USA to study the insects that attack banana plants. A local engineer, Alan Chapman designed the giant sculpture from a concept by John Landi by taking precise measurements of the prize-winning banana from the 1964 Coffs Harbour Agricultural Show!
