The world’s biggest freestanding lollypop has been unveiled in Ravensthorpe! Standing joyfully at 7.4 metres tall and 4 metres wide at the Yummylicious Candy Shack, the idea of the giant lollypop was developed two years ago after the local nickel mine was closed for the second time.
Yummylicious Candy Shack owner Belinda McHarg said that launching the world’s biggest lollypop was a dream come true.
“We wanted to create something to help boost tourism in our town, and who wouldn’t love a giant lollypop?” Belinda said. “It’s big, colourful and just makes people smile.”
Ravensthorpe is known for colour, most famously for hosting the world’s biggest wildflower festival every September featuring up to 700 different species of wildflowers on display. Find out more about the Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show and plan your colourful escape today!
