About The Big Pineapple

The little hamlet of Bathurst lays claims to the biggest pineapple on the planet!

Standing 16.7 metres tall, this gigantic structure is not a cell phone tower in disguise; but rather a tribute to the agricultural success of the prickly fruit. Early farmers struggled to grow any crops here until the first pineapple top was planted in 1865.

The interior boasts a tourist shop, static displays, and a great view. It’s a fun place to take the whole family and learn about the pineapple industry or find a little memento.

Head to the Porcupine Pub afterwards and try their popular pineapple cocktails!

Summerhill Farm, Kowie Road, Bathurst.
