Roadside attractions can transform our towns, cities and motorways.
Roadside attractions can come in all shapes and sizes.
Some of them can bring an element of humour to a boring journey.
In Drumheller, Alberta, there is a huge dinosaur where dinosaur bones and fossils have been put on display.
There are also murals painted by a local artist.
Drumheller is a popular tourist attraction.
In Woombye, Australia at the Big Pineapple, people can visit a wildlife reserve.
It’s a great place for people who have a sweet tooth because they have a large selection of sweets.
The sweets they serve are made of tropical fruit.
Just outside Baguio City in the Philippines, there is a giant lion’s head that many tourists stop at and pose for a photo next to.
I would like to visit the big dinosaur in Drumheller in Canada. I think it would be fun to climb to the top and look out of its mouth. / I would like to visit the Big Pineapple in Australia. I think it would be fun to see all the wildlife there and try the sweets made from tropical fruit. / I would like to visit the giant lion’s head in the Philippines. I think it would be fun to pose for a photo with it.
We chose a huge statue of a dragon. Dragons are a big part of our folklore so we thought it would be a good idea. Our dragon is made of steel and fiberglass like the big dinosaur in Alberta, Canada. Tourists climb up to its mouth to get a fantastic view of the surrounding countryside.
