A Life-Size LEGO Forest Grows in the Australian Outback

 |  |  |  |  July 7, 2012

Have you ever wondered what LEGO trees would look like if they actually grew in to the size of real trees? What would plastic trees look like in our world? Well, wonder no more. Plastic plant life has now emerged in a desert near the mining town of Broken Hill, Australia.

You can see this spectacle until July 12, and as 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!” I would have to agree. You can check out more pictures of the installation here.
