The Big Pineapple, Bathurst

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Bathurst
Marvel at the size of The Big Pineapple, a colossal sculpture erected in the midst of farmland. Modeled after a landmark Australian sculpture in Queensland, the South African copy stands 16.7 m (54.8 ft) tall, about 1 m (3 ft) higher than the original. Step inside the structure to browse the shop and learn interesting facts about the pineapple industry. Climb to the observation deck on the top and get 360-degree views of the surrounding fields and the Indian Ocean in the distance.
