The Big Orange in Gayndah
Welcome to Gayndah, the Big Orange

The Big Orange at Gayndah is at a cafe entering into the Gayndah township from the east along the Burnett Hwy.

The Big Orange was built by a local, Don Kenny, in 1977 for the Gayndah Orange Festival and later moved to its current location in 1983. The orange is made up of twelve sections (segments :)), six sections on top and another six make up the bottom half.

You can walk inside the Big Orange where you will find information around the region and Gayndah itself, as well as a number of brands relating to the orange industry. Old newspaper clippings of the local area are also available to look through and get some insight into the history of the area.

The cafe has burgers and wraps and other refreshments as well as a selection of local produce and products available for purchase. Peanuts, including raw and roasted, in shell and pre-shelled, are available. As you would expect, oranges were on display for purchase also.
