Australia certainly didn’t miss out on the craze for Big Things and since wool export is one of the things Australia is known for around the world, it would be silly to live here and not celebrate it!
Sweetheart wanted to go on a country drive again and who am I to say no to that! I didn’t know where we were going so it was a fun surprise to come off the freeway and see this :)
Inside there is a gift shop (no surprise) but (surprise!) the gift shop didn’t sell much yarn! I only found one basket of 450g merino hanks in natural colours, lovely though it was. I’m considering going back and getting some.
Rather creepily, you can also climb the stairs inside the Big Merino’s head, and see the view through its eyes:
Rather a weird experience. I did take a picture of the view through the eyes, but I’ve decided that’s one anti-climax you’ll have to experience yourself :D hehehe!
After all that excitement, it was time for lunch. And in keeping true to my Australian roots we went across to the Bakery cafe:
Yummo, nothing beats a pie and lamington. These were two of the best I’ve ‘sampled’. Recommended!
It’s Friday night again and another weekend is upon us, I’m looking forward to some more stash sorting and getting my Star Anise Blanket on!
Stay happy :D
