What can I say? This is a truly remarkable landmark, and I was awestruck when I saw it. The whole tourist experience was exceptional. As we pulled up in the car park, we could not believe how big it was. It was only as we walked towards it, we realised it was actually even bigger.
It was only when we got right up close and personal with the bottle, that we realised how big it actually was - at least 6 times bigger than an actual bottle (at least!).
It is clearly 'off the beaten track' as we were the only tourists there - a true hidden gem!
What's more is that there was no admission fee, which made for a nice change considering a lot of the tourist activities in New Zealand are rather expensive.
Only downside is that you can't actually drink any of the L&P, but there are plenty of places in New Zealand where you can actually do this.
Look out for the lemon shaped bin, often missed by those who are not as hawk eyed as my friends and I.
Don't 'bottle' it on your New Zealand trip by missing out on this treat.More
