6pc Aussies want 'giant' Warnie to be tourist attraction

June 25, 2012 - Melbourne

Shane Warne is among a handful of celebrities who Aussies want to see turned into a giant tourist attraction to rival the Big Banana at Coffs Harbour and Tamworth's Big Guitar, a new survey has revealed.

According to the survey of more than 1000 Australians by GPS company TomTom, about 6 percent of people wanted a giant Warnie, the Daily Telegraph reported.

But late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin was the nation's number one choice, with Dame Edna second and Kylie Minogue taking third place.

The survey found a meat pie, a thong, a barbecue and a cricket bat were among other icons people wanted on the list.
