It's about one-ninety-five-thousandth as big as Sydney Harbour
In other words, the size of Sydney Harbour is 93,500 times 6,000 cubic meters.
(formally Port Jackson, a.k.a. Sydney Harbor) (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) (total estuary water volume at high tide)
Lending the term "sydharb" or "sydarb" to comparable quantities of water, Sydney Harbor contains approximately 562,000,000 cubic meters of water. Snapper Island, a onetime naval facility loocated in the Harbour, was transformed by the dredging efforts of the Australian Navy from a 2,360 sq. m (25,400 sq. ft) outcropping to a 16,500 sq. m (178,000 sq. ft) island shaped roughly in the outline of a boat.
It's about 100,000 times as big as a Beer Keg
In other words, 6,000 cubic meters is 102,000 times the size of a Beer Keg, and the size of a Beer Keg is 0.00000980 times that amount.
(Half barrel; maximum capacity)
The most common keg size sold by US beer sellers is a half-barrel type with a volume of 0.0587 cubic meters. This type of keg contains the equivalent of 165 0.000355 cubic meters cans of beer.
It's about 550,000 times as big as a Basketball (packed)
