An anonymous philanthropist is hoping to gain a World Heritage Listing for Australia’s famous Big Banana.
The Coffs Harbour recluse has apparently approached UNESCO about the famous roadside super fruit becoming a preserved heritage site.
“The first rule of the UNESCO World Heritage criteria is to ‘represent a masterpiece of human creative genius, which the Big Banana excels at.”
The Big Banana almost slipped into obscurity when the landmark went bankrupt in the early 90s, but became a fruitful enterprise again years later.
“I think John Landi would be extremely proud to know that his creation could be the first oversized roadside source of Vitamin B in the world to be given this amazing honour.”
A song in 2012 by Havana Brown called “Big Banana” peaked at number one on the US Hot Dance Club Songs. However, the artist has never confirmed nor denied a connection to the Coffs Harbour tourist attraction.
