Macca’s goes Big this Australia Day with Mac-nificent tribute to Aussie farmers The Down Under Big Big Mac joins famous Aussie Big Things
Australia is a big country, with a big heart. We’re a proud nation, which is why when we celebrate all things Aussie, including local produce, we do it in a big way.
This Australia Day, Macca’s is showing the love to local legends who produce the ingredients that go into the Big Mac in the biggest way they can, launching the Down Under Big Big Mac as part of Australia’s famous list of ‘big things’.
From the Big Banana, to the Big Prawn and Merino, the towering tribute, over eight metres tall, will be added to the map, thanking the Aussie farmers that make the iconic Big Mac so great.
The Down Under Big Big Mac will launch in the agricultural hub of Tamworth, NSW, and will be unveiled at sunrise on Australia Day (Thursday 26 January 2017).
Jo Feeney, Director of Marketing at Macca’s, says “With locally sourced beef, lettuce, pickles and wheat, it’s our homegrown ingredients that help make the Big Mac an Aussie favourite. We think the Down Under Big Big Mac is a fitting way to say thanks to our Aussie farmers and suppliers in Australia.”
Col Murray, Tamworth Region Mayor, says “We’re incredibly excited to welcome the Down Under Big Big Mac to Tamworth. Agriculture is at the heart of our community with farmers taking great pride in supplying the tastiest and best produce. The Down Under Big Big Mac is a great way to say thanks to the farmers here in Tamworth and across the country who help keep Australian agriculture prosperous.”
Those in Tamworth will be able to get a bite of the action, by heading to Waler Park (Kable Avenue) and snapping a pic with the ‘you-beaut’ monument on Australia Day.
Aussies further afield can give their own nod to the country’s farmers by enjoying their Big Mac ‘Down Under’ style, upside down, and sharing a snap on social this Australia Day.
