The family trip of a life-time, 3 months towing a caravan to Queensland. Windows down, colouring books, sibling bickering….life was sweet. “Why do bananas wear suntan lotion?” said Dad as we pulled into the Big Banana car park, “Because they peel”……….
In the pantheon of Australia’s big things The Big Banana is probably the biggest of them all. Built in 1964 who would have thought an enormous banana could be the basis of a theme park that has prospered for over 50 years. There’s an ice skating rink there now for goodness sake!
