From The Big Camel to The Big Cicada, Northern Territory reveals its "next big tourist attraction"

The travel company Wotif is accepting applications for the next & # 39; Big Thing & # 39; from Australia to join the ranks of Big Banana and Big Lobster

The NT, famous for its monstrous crocodiles, could soon be known for cicadas and camels if a new tourist field receives the nod.

The travel company Wotif is accepting applications for the next big thing & # 39; from Australia to join the ranks of Big Banana and Big Lobster.

The national search will give an Australian city with a tourist attraction that will surely stop those who pass, in celebration of the 18th birthday of the companies.

Tourism Northern Territory has presented its six launches for the competition, but the infamous crocodile will not have its moment in the spotlight.

The proposal includes a giant statue of Jabiru for Kakadu, & # 39; The Big Camel & # 39; for Alice Springs, & # 39; The Big Cicada & # 39; for Katherine, the & # 39; Big Barra & # 39; for Darwin and & # 39; The Big Didge & # 39; for Arnhem Land and & # 39; The Big Gold Nugget & # 39; for Tennant Creek.

NT Tourism Deputy Chief Andrew Hopper said one of the regional towns in the Northern Territories was worthy of Wotif's Next Big Thing, NT News reported.

"We are fortunate to have one of the largest monoliths in the world, which is more than just a big red rock, it is a place of cultural importance for the aborigines and a major tourist attraction in the spiritual heart of Australia," he said.

"We also have an impressive collection of great attractions scattered throughout the Territory.

Mr. Hopper said it would make a lot of sense to add a & # 39; Big Thing & # 39; to the growing collection of territories.

"And we have some great ideas, from Big Camels to Big Gold Nuggets, that we'll throw into the mix to make sure that Territory is at the forefront and at the center of voting time," he said.

NT Tourism has mocked his proposals, since Mr. Hopper said the campaign was an opportunity to have fun.

Wotif launched the campaign in early September and is requesting that Australians nominate the next major tourist attraction in the country.

The travel company has shared some of the ideas that have received so far in social networks.

Wotif believes that a new Big Thing is a great way to boost tourism and give back to the people and places that helped build their success.

All entries will be evaluated by a panel within Wotif, with a list of finalists announced on September 25.

The public will have two weeks to vote on their favorite, and by noon on October 9, Australia's Next Big Thing will be decided.

Wotif expects the project to be completed and made public by the end of 2018.
