The Big Melon

Landmarks and Buildings

Stop and take a photo of this giant four tonnes, three-metre high, nine-metre wide bright pink watermelon slice which stands pride of place on the Warrego Highway, between the Chinchilla Visitor Information Centre and the railway crossing.

Chinchilla is well known for the Chinchilla Watermelon Festival and this great icon is perfect for Chinchilla.

A national online travel company competition to build a new “Big Thing”, saw Chinchilla’s bid for a Big Melon slice beat three other finalists for an oversized tourist attraction.
