Lego lovers converged on Woden’s Hellenic Club in droves last Friday, Saturday and Sunday (10-12 August) for the incredibly popular three-day Canberra Brick Expo.

The now annual volunteer-run event started in 2010 and this year featured rare and unique Lego creations by interstate, local collectors and modellers showcasing hundreds of static, moving and robotic models.

There were trains, planes, and automobiles, as well as ocean liners and grand buildings, monuments and sculptures.

The Australian War Memorial even made an appearance.

Profits from the event went to PaTCH — Paediatrics at The Canberra Hospital. More than $350,000 has been raised through ticket sales, which has been used for equipment such as mobile cardiotocography (CTG) machines for the birthing suite and child friendly way-finding images throughout the hospital foyer.

Local photographer Jack Mohr was on site to capture all the action. Check out the creations which caught his eye and pick out your favourites.
