Attraction details
Owner description: One of the most photographed attractions in New Brunswick, i.e. Shediac’s Giant Lobster, is ageing gracefully, even very gracefully, and we plan to celebrate its 25th anniversary in style this year (2015). This work of art measuring 11 metres long, 5 metres in width, 5 metres high and weighing nearly 90 tons saw the light of day thanks to an initiative launched by the Shediac Rotary Club. The Town and the Rotary Club will therefore work together to mark the quarter century of existence of this work of art sculpted by the artist Winston Bronnum. For more information on the festivities marking the 25th anniversary, please visit the Town of Shediac’s website.

“Big Lobster, Great photos for kids :)”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our family drove into Shediac at the request of our nine year old daughter. Glad that we did. She loved it and we now have some fantastic photos of the kids on this giant lobster. We liked how there were little gift shops close to the statue. We bought a few little things and everyone in the shops were very friendly. There are also washrooms at this attraction. Fortunately for us there were not a lot of people there so we got some awesome photos. Shediac is a nice little town.

“Beautiful town and even better beaches.”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Shediac is a nice little town, with very friendly people. The beaches there are very inviting, with fine sand and warm water. We were surprised that the beaches were not packed. Lots of room to lie out, or walk along the beach.
