(AP) Pagans and druids, mark your calendars and book your airplane tickets. An Australian entrepreneur hopes to open a Stonehenge replica by the Dec. 21 solstice, just in time for New Age revelers.

....And!, Why do we need a Stonehenge Replica exactly?

This is the first I've heard of it and It just seems to be the most ridiculous idea ever?...Though with saying that, I will probably be going to see it at some point?

And don't forget the Big Lobster! Although you could call that "fruits of the sea"

I've been to Stonehenge, magical spot.
I know this replica won't compare but it's only 3 or so hours to WA. It's nearly 24 and then some to get to the real Stonehenge. That alone makes it appealing.

A novelty yes, but I'd still want to see it. I mean c'mon, this guy is going to replicate STONEHENGE!!!

I noted early on that it was being built at Margie's. Hence me being so keen. Good wine, good beaches, great weather. Yup! If he builds it they will come!

Being Australian, I'd have thought he'd be building "Beercanhenge".
