This picture is of the 'Big Oyster' in Taree - it shows the changing face of tourism in New South Wales!
Once the Big Oyster was quite an attraction - a bit of a testament to Australia's 1980s fascination with attracting tourists by building 'BIG' icons - a'la The Big Guitar in Tamworth, The Big Axe in Kew, The Big Banana in Coffs Harbour, The Big Merino in Goulburn, The Big Prawn in Ballina, The Big Bull in Wauchope (and that's just NSW!) and the list goes on...
Taree's Big Oyster has finished its life as a Nissan car-dealership, with the viewing deck between the shells now serving as a display area for the latest models of cars!
