It was a crisp Sunday morning when my friends and I planned a trip to Legoland in Namadgi National Park. While 'Legoland' may sound like a theme park, it is certainly not.

To get to Legoland, we followed Tharwa on Google maps, which is a 45-minute drive from Canberra. After reaching Tharwa, we looked for the signboard for 'honeysuckle campground.' After reaching this, spot we followed the dirt road which is roughly 10 minutes and leads to another car park. From here, the track leads to 'Legoland.'

It took us roughly an hour to reach the track. The drive on the dirt road was exhilarating. Although it had started to rain, it did not dampen our spirits. My friends held onto their umbrellas before heading for the walk, while I relied on my waterproof jacket.
As we started the walk, seeing big boulders on the side of the track sparked our adventurous side. We got off track and headed towards the big boulders.

Even though the rocks were slippery, we struggled and managed to climb the boulders to get to the edge. From here, the view was amazing: the cloudy sky made it look even more mesmerising.

After relishing the view for some time, we started our walk through the bushes, looking for the actual path. It was approximately a 15-minute walk before we reached the place that gives this place the name 'Legoland.' It was an almost flat clear land with huge boulders in a cave-like formation. We looked for a way to the top of the boulders and eventually found a tree and some broken branches that would enable us to climb to the top.

Each of us climbed the boulders to sit at the top of the biggest boulder: it was serene to sit there and listen to the chirping of the birds around us.


Eager to explore other places, we started to climb back down. I almost fell when the branch that I was stepping on was not robust and moved suddenly under my foot. However, I was grasping the tree with my hands, so I was safe and sound.

It was a little disappointing to know that the track had ended here. We headed back to the car park following the track throughout the way this time.

We drove back to honeysuckle campground and followed the track from here.

One track led to Baroomba Rocks, while the other one led to an unknown place. With the toss of a coin, we decided to follow the unknown track.

We saw many kangaroos in the way and they were surprisingly not frightened to see us.

The track led us to a dirt road which we started to follow until we reached the top. The views on this route were breathtaking.

As it had started to rain again and it was getting colder, we decided to retrace our steps and head back to our car.

It was a truly refreshing day trip!
