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.
Larry the Lobster was designed to attract business to the lobster restaurant and visitor centre behind his Big Lobster Legs. The address for the Big Lobster is 1 Princes Highway, Kington SE.
Larry was honored by South Australian Premier David Tonkin, who opened the attraction to the public 10 days before Christmas 1979. The current owners of Larry are Jenna Lawrie and Casey Sharpe.
