The Real Juice Company Citrus Sculptures are a unique event in Australia and a feature of the Griffith Spring Fest.
The sculptures line the main street of Griffith for two weeks - this year from October 7 to 20 – creating a magnificent sight.
Now in their 23rd year, the sculptures have grown from just five in 1995 to more than
More than 70 wacky 3D sculptures, including a grand piano, talking robot, reclining chook and castle are created using more than 100,000 oranges.
This year there are the added delights of six new sculptures, including a big tennis racquet, a stately grandfather clock and a giant number plate.
Around 800 volunteers took time over the course of a day to create the masterpieces.
Based on the famous lemon sculptures in Menton, France, with Griffith being a major citrus producing region the sculpture idea was a good one.
Griffith was even granted permission to use the Menton method of securing the fruit to the steel frames of the sculptures.
The exhibition is one of the most unique in Australia and is free to view at any time, including at night when they are spotlit for extended viewing.
As the sculptures line a major thoroughfare, including down a section of the Banna Avenue median, parents should ensure their children are under supervision at all time.
