I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of visiting Sydney. Hubby and I met in Sydney and lived there for years before moving to Melbourne to settle down and start a family. Sydney holds so many wonderful memories for me and its great to be able to make so many more with the kids in tow.
Last weekend we took the kids up for a couple of days to catch up with friends and family. Sydney is known to be a bit of a show off and did not disappoint! We enjoyed long sunny Autumn days followed by some of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve seen in a while.
But by far, the highlight of the trip for my boys was the Sydney Harbour Icons LEGO Exhibition at the Museum of Sydney. Put simply, it is LEGO Heaven. Ryan McNaught, Australia’s only certified LEGO Professional (what a job!!) has brought to life Sydney’s most loved Harbour icons in brilliant LEGO form. The series includes a P&O Cruise ship, Sydney Opera House, Luna Park, the Harbour Bridge as well as plenty of other watercraft regularly seen on the harbour.
The cross sections of the Opera House and cruise ship provide plenty of entertainment for the kids as they explore what each of the LEGO characters are up to. My boys were inspired by the Sydney Harbour creations and enjoyed making their very own creations out of the mammoth amount of LEGO supplied in the middle of the tables.
It is recommended that you book your session in advance and each session runs for 1 hour. We attended the 11:30am session and it was fairly quiet. It is $15 per person (over 3yrs old) and the exhibition is running until 31 July 2016 – perfect for the winter school holidays! To book a session and for more information see HERE.
