Our banana is not so big

IS MACKAY lacking something "big"?

Bundaberg has the Big Barrel, Normanton has the Big Barramundi and Tully has the Big Golden Gumboot.

Now Townsville is set to get a big crocodile.

The 10 metre croc will greet visitors on the highway when they come into town.

There are an estimated more than 150 "big" objects around the country and while Wikipedia lists North Mackay's banana as Mackay's "big thing", it's not exactly a tourist draw card.

Does Mackay need a big thing?
