A Lego forest blooms in the Australian outback
To celebrate 50 years of the Lego brick in Australia, the toy brand has launched the Lego Festival of Play, and has been 'planting' lifesize Lego forests across Australia. The latest sprang up earlier this week in the remote outback town of Broken Hill....
The forest is planted in the Living Desert nature reserve, and features a giant version of the Lego pine trees and flowers set, with the flora here standing at 66 times the size of the original Lego pieces.
The Broken Hill forest follows an earlier Lego forest that was planted in Martin Place in Sydney over a rainy few days in April (see image below).
The Broken Hill forest will be on display until July 12, and Lego is planning further unexpected plantings in Australia over the course of the year. Visit legofestival.com.au for more information.
Everything looks better in the sunshine!
Sad to see in artificial flower and greenery in desert!
@ Luke. What is sunshine?
Never have to water the plants again!
You guys need to Lego of the weather chat and crit the work. Which I think is amazing by the way.
And just like that, I’m a child again. Lovely.
i WANT a giant Lego tree now.
Damn!! I'm so in love with the Lego forest. It has that nostalgic feel to it, reminds me of the good old days :)
Looks like BIG LEGO.
