Life Size LEGO Forest in the Australian Outback

There’s no stopping with LEGO as new ingenious ways of using the playful bricks are being thought up. The possibilities are endless. Celebrating 50 years in Australia with their Festival of Play, LEGO have various installations across the country and this is the most recent set up in the rural town of Broken Hill of New South Wales. A life-sized LEGO forest consisting of 15 four-meter ‘pine’ trees and flower sets have been recreated to a 1:1 ratio of the original pieces, but supersized to be 66 times bigger. The forest rising from the red soil creates a colourful contrast against the vibrant landscape, a breathtaking sight and a giant playground. This installation is on until July 12.
