Decorating Fences With Trash Is A Thing In New Zealand

Some hate it and some love it!

What do you usually do with items you no longer have a use for, like your old toothbrushes, boots, or bras? Usually, you discard them and toss them into the trash or find other ways to reuse them. For some people in New Zealand, however, these items can be used as decors for fences — the famous of this can be found in Central Otago.

The Cardrona Bra Fence has become a unique tourist attraction that started in 1999. It has gained worldwide attention for the colorful brassieres brazenly displayed on the fence.

The bra fence started one morning when four women’s bras were found hanging on the fence along the road.

Since then, the number of bras multiplied to thousands and the fence has become a sight for tourists.

As expected, the bra fence was not received well by some people who think that the display of underwear along a public road is an embarrassing and unpleasant sight. These haters started attacking the fence, stripping off the bras on several occasions. However, the bras would return each time. Tourists can also make donations at the pink charity box to support the BCF.

Besides bras, other discarded items, like toothbrushes, flip-flops, and even bicycles, have also been used. In the quiet rural area in Te Pahu, the fence along the road is decorated with colorful toothbrushes. A local named Graema Cairns is the person behind this quirky attraction.

As the toothbrush fence became famous, more people started donating their own.

These flip-flops are called jandals in NZ — short for Japanese sandals.

Jandals have become sort of a national icon in the country.

This jandal fence can be found in Kaeo in Northland, New Zealand.

In Woodhill, North West Auckland, one can find the gumboots fence.

Some may think these fences are absurd while others are amused to see such a unique sight. What do you think?

Take A Look At The Most Expensive Hotel Suite In The World, Which Costs $80,000 A NIGHT!

The marble bathroom is equipped with Hermes accessories.

When it comes to expensive accommodations, we are inclined to think that the priciest ones are located in places like Las Vegas, where money rolls around in obscene amounts, or Dubai, where the truly rich treats sports cars like disposable underwear. You would be surprised to discover that the most expensive accommodation of them all is within the area of serene Lake Geneva in Switzerland and you probably need to be a one-percenter to be able to afford it.

No less than Bill Gates, Rihanna, and Richard Branson have stayed at this super posh suite at Hotel President Wilson.
