This weekend not only marks a well deserved long weekend (Australia Day, January 26), but also the final weekend of ‘Brickman Awesome’ – a LEGO exhibition fit for the young and the (not so) young.
Serial LEGO constructor, Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught, has brought his fourth exhibition here to the Adelaide Convention Centre, and has been hugely popular since its opening on January 10, welcoming over twelve thousand visitors.
Open until Sunday 27 January (last entry 3pm), you’ll be able to lose yourself amongst the 2 million LEGO bricks, featuring 39 models – none of which previously displayed in Adelaide.
One of the most ‘awesome’ models in the exhibition is a full-scale LEGO replica of the new, eighth generation Toyota Camry, which is 616 LEGO studs long, 230 studs wide, and weighs over a tonne.
And if that’s not impressive, The Brickman will be showcasing the tallest LEGO model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket. Standing at a whopping 7.5 metres tall and built from more than 450,000 bricks. It’s even got an in-built lighting and sound system. Goals.
And in true Aussie style, there is a full-sized LEGO kangaroo, koala and Australian saltwater crocodile…crikey mate!
While you’re there, you’ll probably be itching to get your hands busy with some LEGO, and luckily that itch can be scratched. Visitors to are able to build their own masterpieces at the play stations, containing over one million LEGO bricks.
Tickets will be available at the door, however booking in advance is advised to avoid disappointment.
