Brickman Awesome - ICC Sydney - Review

This week we were invited to Brickman Awesome at the ICC Sydney and I must say it was truly awesome! It’s easy to take for granted how long it would have taken Ryan and his team to build the different models displayed, they all look so impressive and in some cases so life-sized and definitely something that I will let the experts do!

We saw the only life-sized LEGO Harley Davidson ever made as well as the impressive Caterpillar dump truck! Little Mister loved the full-sized LEGO Australian saltwater crocodile which weighs 60kgs and was built using more than 40,000 LEGO bricks and took 130 hours to build - how amazing!

The NASA Space Launch System with light and sound effects was also very impressive with over 460,000 LEGO bricks used and taking 563 hours - wow! The 3m Orcha Whale built using 14,000 LEGO Duplo and LEGO bricks was remarkable to stand next to, so was the Eiffel Tower and Sydney Opera House!

The exhibition isn’t only about record breaking LEGO models, it also inspires visitors and children to build models around the exhibition like building LEGO Duplo Penguins to add to the colony, build a Harley, build an animal, a time-travelling car, a dump truck and contribute with other visitors to build the longest LEGO snake!!

The exhibition is great for Lego fans and little builders. I recommend taking kids 3 years+ who can take full advantage of the building spots around the exhibition. The penguin station is the only Duplo station. Little Miss 5 really enjoyed looking around and building things around the stations including her name for the longest Lego snake. A family ticket for 2 adults and 2 children is $95. The tickets are for timed sessions but we stayed for 1 hour and were not asked to leave at any time. There is parking in the ICC Sydney building with a special summer price of daily charge of $20. Head to the Darling Quarter after for a play in the playground and to cool down in the water play spots.

Grab the kids swimmers, a towel and some change of clothes and pop into the Darling Quarter playground and water play area nearby. Our review on the blog.
