Ever wanted a garden that didn’t require water or maintenance? Well the southern hemispheres’ only LEGO® certified professional has replicated the iconic Rouse Hill House & Farm using only LEGO® bricks.

The detailed re-creation showcases the properties many outbuildings, gardens and even our resident farm animals. For me the best part is trying to find the LEGO® garden team maintaining the grounds with mowers, snippers and hedging shears. The trees and gardens have also been replicated in great detail and make me wonder about possibilities of the application of LEGO® in garden design and planning.

Your entry ticket also includes a tour of the house and grounds so you can see the property’s full scale and the models' realism first hand; you might even catch the real garden team at work. Each session is an hour long and incorporates time to create your own LEGO® masterpiece or garden with over 200,000 loose bricks to work with.
