Australia's Big Lobster is up for sale

Commercial Real Estate

Australia is land of the big things. From the Big Banana to the Big Golden Guitar, the Big Merino, and the Big Pineapple.

Even Tesla founder Elon Musk hopes his “Big Battery” will become a tourist attraction once it’s built.

In fact, there are estimated to be over 150 such objects around the country, spanning every state.

While they’re great to visit and have the obligatory tourist photo with, imagine actually owning one.

Well, now you can because South Australia’s Big Lobster is up for sale, along with its adjoining restaurant and function centre.

Commercial Real Estate

Located on the Princes Highway, at the entrance to Kingston SE — a tourism and lobster fishing port — the property and the 17-metre high crustacean, weighing four tonnes, is only a three-hour south-west drive from Adelaide.

“Larry” the Lobster — which has just finished having a $50,000 refurbishment — and the 740m2 venue, which was built in 1979 and designed to look like a craypot, will go under the hammer on Friday.

Linda Tait, from Ottoson Partners who is managing the listing, told Commercial Real Estate, that similar commercial properties in the area are selling for between $300,000 and $400,000.
