This 3.5 ton LEGO tree is the tallest in the southern hemisphere

Via Leg Godt.

Using of a combination of Duplo and Lego bricks, the Aussies have erected a 32.8 foot Lego Christmas at the Pitt Street Mall in Sydney. A team of five dedicated builders spent 1,200 hours planning and constructing the mammoth tree which will be on display until December 26th.

As well as being absolutely huge, this display also has some really cool sub-builds like a Christmas Koala, Santa holding a surfboard (it is summer in Australia after all), basketball sized ornaments and a big pile of gifts and a reindeer that was designed by 10-year-old Lego Club member Luke Francis. If that isn’t overwhelming enough, the whole display also lights up!

Builds of this caliber are incredible. Seeing them move gigantic Lego constructions around with fork lifts and cranes is truly an amazing sight.
