Forget about global warming, G20, financial and polar meltdown - here's the real news!

 

One of Queensland’s landmark “big” attractions has disappeared in an apparent overnight heist. The 10m-high Big Mango at Bowen in north Queensland was prised from its concrete platform where it had sat for more than a decade.

Bowen Tourist Information Centre manager Christin Short was the first to notice when he arrived at work this morning – and assumed it must have been removed for repairs. But a call to the Bowen Tourism Chairman Paul McLaughlin confirmed there was no planned maintenance – and an inspection found the three-storey mango had indeed been unbolted and stolen.
