LEGO® collectors of Canberra – rejoice!

One thing is for sure about LEGO® – it isn’t just for kids – there’s a lot of adult LEGO enthusiasts and collectors out there! And yep, my family are LEGO lovers from way back! We were lucky enough to be invited to do a Visit California famil trip last year and were hosted at LEGOLAND California and got to stay in the LEGOLAND Castle hotel. And of course we’ve been to the wonderful LEGOLAND Melbourne too. We are also avid watchers of LEGO Masters. So you can bet we were super-eager to see the new LEGO store in Canberra – our local stomping ground!

Kangaroo Selfie LEGO Girl

The first thing that you notice when you enter the new LEGO store in Canberra is the huge Kangaroo and LEGO girl taking a selfie together.

This fabulous construction was made by Ryan McNought (AKA “The Brickman”), with 87,173 lego bricks and took 394 hours!

The Kangaroo Selfie Girl is an awesome spot to “do it for the gram” and get an Instagram selfie right along with them – we had to do this immediately of course – so fun!

There are lots of LEGO installations scattered around this large new store – it’s a real adventure just to wander around!

Not to be missed is the incredible mosaic covering a pillar towards the rear of the store. Also built by The Brickman Ryan McNought, this beautiful LEGO mosaic was inspired by a photograph taken by local artist Erna Glassford.

The artwork features Black Mountain Tower surrounded by hot air balloons drifting over from Lake Burley Griffin. It’s such an iconic Canberra image art work!
