Photo Gallery - Singleton Sundial

The sundial at Singleton (NSW, Australia) makes various claims to being the world's largest sundial. The sundial at Lloydminster (Alberta, Canada) is obviously larger, but was probably built later. There are some lesser claims made, such as "Largest monolithic sundial" or "Largest monolithic sundial in the southern hemisphere." I don't know what is correct, but it's certainly a large sundial.
