The Cardrona Bra Fence was a controversial tourist attraction in Central Otago, New Zealand, where passers-by started to hang bras on a rural fence. The Bra Fence had its origin on a day between Christmas and New Year 1999, when four women's bras were found hanging to the wire fence. As news spread, more bras began to appear, but the bras were removed anonymously. This attracted more people, and by October 2000, the number of bras was about 200, and in early 2006, the number of bras attached to the fence was about 800. As the fence rested on a public road reserve, the local Council determined the bra fence was a traffic hazard and an eyesore and ordered the bras on the fence to be removed. It seems that the Bra Fence is a piece of history now, but there are thousands of photos of the Bra Fence on the worldwide web for posterity.
