The concept of roadside attractions, turned on its ear. Instead of folks traveling to see Rambo, it came to them for one unique day.
The world's biggest sheep, the Big Merino, in the town of Goulburn, Australia. The 96 tonne, 15 metre tall, 4 metre wide, 18 metre long, cement and steel giant, nicknamed Rambo, was transported 800 metres (half a mile) to a new location. The four storey tall Rambo was a monumentally successful tourist attraction from its opening in 1985, until 1992 when a new freeway bypassed the town and tourists overlooked poor old Rambo. Now, three local businessmen, Robert Rampton, Stephen Jones and Frazer Roberts have purchased the enormous ram and are moving the giant to a more prestigious location in a petrol station closer to the freeway.
