Legoland Discovery Centre

Lego's first Legoland Discovery Centre in the southern hemisphere has arrived in Melbourne! Occupying a massive space (2800 sqm) at Chadstone Shopping Centre, the brick-filled play centre will delight little and big Lego fans. The space is packed with more than two million Lego bricks and features attractions including Miniland Melbourne where the city's best-known landmarks has been recreated out of thousands of Lego bricks. There are also play zones for the kids and Lego-themed rides called  Kingdom Quest and Merlin's Apprentice.  Test your skills at the Creative Workshops and see how you fare against fellow Lego fans, or visit the Lego store to get some bricks to take home.
