From 21-22 December 1996 I travelled from Sydney to Brisbane by car, up Highway One - the Pacific Highway coastal road.From temperate Sydney to Sub-Tropical Brisbane.

As I went along I started to notice curious giant statues at tourist attractions. After passing several I got out the digital camera and started snapping.

The photos were mostly taken from the side of the highway in a hurry. The locations and names are approximate.

The maps were generated using Map Quest's Internactive Atlas.
