This attraction is essentially a big rusted rock in a vacant lot in a small town. There are some nice shops and cafes around it, but not really an attraction

Literally nothing else to see at the spot except the big potato, however, thoroughly recommend the pie shop up the road or the cheese factory across the road if you are in town.....

we've been to most of the 'Big' attractions in Australia, the Prawn, the Banana, etc. Most don't offer much in the way of interest except for the large effigy. This is no exception. Robertson potatoes are renowned and feature on the menu of most restaurants...More

Sorry to say Robertson but this was a rather weird feature of your town. I was expecting a giant size potato like the Big Merino in Goulburn. This rusty old monument was an eyesore.

It looks like a big rock. If the town park just happened to contain a big rock and they called it a potato, it might be funny, but someone actually built this monstrosity.
