Life-Sized LEGO Forest Sprouts Up in Australian Outback

Imagine walking outside your door and seeing this! Who wouldn’t rub their eyes in disbelief? A life-sized LEGO forest has sprung up in the Australian outback, in a small, isolated mining city called Broken Hill. Residents woke up to a surprise as they witnessed 15 13-foot tall pine trees and 15 flower sets “growing” on their barren red soil. (Back in April, a similar LEGO forest delighted tourists and visitors at Sydney’s Martin Place.)

Appearing from July 2 to July 12, the LEGO forest is at Living Desert, a unique reserve with spectacular views and numerous walking trails. Caroline Squire, Director of Marketing, LEGO Australia and New Zealand said, “The contrast of the larger-than-life green trees against the vast red Aussie land is an unforgettable sight!"

This is all part of LEGO Festival of Play, a nine-month schedule of hands-on events and elaborate creations all set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the LEGO brick in Australia.
