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.

“Very funny”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I wrote excellent just because my children loved it (young ones) and it makes great and funny pictures. But be sure that there is always a lot of people waiting to take pictures.

“Hokey but cute!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

If you have kids you have to take their photo here! It is actually a pretty good rendition of a lobster (uncooked) and it is gigantic. There is no charge because you can view the thing from the street and it is a land mark.

“Perfect Stop for the Family”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

What's not to like...it's free, parking is a breeze and there were lots of picnic tables (some even under shelters for shade) to take a breather and have a snack and nice clean washrooms. Shops are neat and there is a great little playground for the kids to blow off some steam. We knew we'd see the big lobster, but there was so much more to this road trip stop that we greatly appreciated....a lovely town and a great view. A nice surprise.

“A photographer's delight”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This lobster must be the most photographed in the world, bus loads of tourists and locals are always posing on it.
