The Grand Tour headstones arrive in Sydney ….ahead of a full series launch

Giant headstones of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have arrived in Sydney fuelling speculation that The Grand Tour presenters could be Australia-bound ….with confirmation that a full series launch is also due.

First seen leaving a boat at White Bay, the three eight foot tall stone statues were craned onto a freight truck bearing The Grand Tour logos, before beginning a tour of Sydney, raising speculation that a colossal statue could be erected somewhere in the country. Trucks containing other body parts including Jeremy, James and Richard’s arms, legs and even crotch have also been spotted.

The series has so far seen episodes filmed in the US, UK and South Africa with The Netherlands, Finland, Germany and Dubai to follow.

While the show has so far only been accessible streaming Amazon from the US, an official tweet will further speculation that Amazon could launch a full streaming service in Australia.

An Amazon spokesperson said, “As announced by Jeremy, Richard and James in November we will be launching the show globally which means you will be able to watch The Grand Tour in over 200 countries and territories very soon in December.”


  1. These headstones will undoubtably prove much liveiler, more intelligent and more entertaining than the people they represent. No need to “launch” this series in Australia, just mount these bits of concrete somewhere prominent (perhaps alongside Westconnex somewhere) so all those with similar taste can be entertained for free.

    Just saw very short like 1or 2 second clips on their twitter account, they look similar to TopGear! Just wondering whether BBC will kick up a stink about how certain excerpts from The show could be very similar!
