Milo Announce Construction Plans For The Big Milo Tin

Aussies love a good oversized object just plonked down in some random outback location. 

So far we’ve got the Big Beer Can in Cobar, the Big Merino in Goulburn and the Big Prawn in Ballina amongst man others. 

Now, in true Aussie spirit, the next big thing is coming in 2019 and it’s none other than a big Milo Tin that is set to come to the town of Kempsey in northern New South Wales. 

The plans were set in motion when Milo posted an image to their Facebook asking if Aussies would like to see the malt-heavy chocolate drink immortalised in the form of an oversized monument. The post gained over 15,000 likes and nearly 2,000 comments in support of the big art. 

Now, in a move that is completely delightful, the ‘Big Milo Tin’ will be coming to Kempsey in 2019 in celebration of Milo’s 85th birthday! The choice of location is rather fabulous since the Milo factory is located just outside of Kempsey. 

Nestlé Factory Manager Mat Oram said in a statement: “We’ve been blown away by the level of support for the ‘Big Milo Tin’. What started as a fun idea has quickly grown into something much bigger.”

Time to add another big item to your road trip list in 2019!
