FREE Lego event for young and old

This year it is another gigantic LEGO model; this time the Acropolis that famous ancient citadel situated high on a rocky outcrop overlooking the city of Athens.
Both exhibits were built by Australia's only LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught, who lives in Melbourne. It took Ryan 300 hours and over 120,000 LEGO bricks to build the Acropolis for this display.
Kids will love looking at the amazing detail. Get them to spot Elton John playing at this piano. Not as strange as it seems as Elton John played a gig at the Acropolis in 2000. They may be able to spot a little LEGO Lord Elgin stealing the marble statues from the Parthenon and a LEGO Theseus in the labyrinth facing a LEGO minotaur. Or even even more contemporary reference they should be able to spot a LEGO Tony Mokbel in a rather suspicious looking wig.
