The Big Melon

Be ready to stop and take a photo of this giant bright pink watermelon slice on your way in to Chinchilla. Weighing four tonnes, standing three-metres high and nine-metres wide this iconic slice of watermelon holds pride of place on the Warrego Highway, situated 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.
