A well known icon on the southern outskirts of Brisbane is the Big Gun Fruit and Vegetable barn. So named, because in the 1960s there were no buildings anywhere near but a scrap metal yard. Someone sold them this big gun as scrap iron. Eventually, when commercial buildings were built, the area was refereed to as being "by the gig gun". A shopping complex bought the site and adopted the gun as its symbol. The area is still referred to as being by the big gun.
