The World’s Largest Lobster resides in Kingston SE, South Australia. Affectionately called “Larry the Lobster”, this Big Thing To See in Australia is a 17 metre tall spiny lobster!
In 1979, Larry was built from steel and fibreglass for Ian Backler and Rob Moyse by artist Paul Kelly, who also built the North Adelaide Big Scotsman! Mr. Kelly actually built Larry in Edwardstown, and then transported him over the area roads.

New York City is the place where you can see a lot of the world’s largest things. There was the world’s largest LEGO model — an X-Wing Starfighter spaceship from Star Wars — that LEGO and LucasFilms displayed in Times Square in May 2013. The biggest solar-powered boat on Earth, the “Turanor PlanetSolar” docked in New York in June 2013. And in 2015 or 2016, a giant 625-foot tall Ferris wheel called the New York Wheel will open on Staten Island! (“They like it. They wheely like it,” wrote New York Daily News reporter Casey Tolan.)
But today, let’s take a road trip to find a totally different example of one of our Big Things To See in the USA… now first off, let’s establish something: do you like candy? Do you REALLY like candy?
Minnesota may be nicknamed the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, but this Big Thing To See is about as far away as you might get from spending time in this state’s famous Big Outdoors. In fact, what has been called “the Sprawl of America” disparagingly by some folks could easily be called the BIG INDOORS!
We’ve all walked into our home or apartment one evening, only to discover that an invasion has taken place… and the army of dirty clothes will not easily be turned back! But no matter how tall the piles of dirty socks are, no matter how stinky the laundry basket is, VroomVroomVroom’s friends in the Chicagoland area know they’ve got a secret weapon in nearby Berwyn, Illinois: Tom Benson’s World’s Largest Laundromat!
