Brick By Brick: Build Your Own Capital City

It is the most enduring of modern children’s toys – delighting, challenging and engaging generation after generation of boys and girls around the world.

And this February, Darwin kids (and kids at heart) have the opportunity to do something they may have never done with Lego before, and build a new Australian capital city – or replicate the iconic buildings of Canberra.

Brick by Brick: Build Your Own Capital City is a touring activity and exhibition developed by the National Capital Authority, designed to increase Australians’ awareness of the unique characteristics of their Australian capital city, Canberra. 

“In partnership with the City of Darwin Libraries, we’re delighted to provide the community with not only a great family friendly holiday activity, but with one that is educational and encourages everyone to discover more about Australia’s capital,” said the Hon. Nigel Scullion, Senator for the Northern Territory.

“We hope that this exhibition can inspire children as active civic citizens, showcasing extraordinary Lego structures that represent both the iconic Canberra buildings of today, as well as the bright future they envisage for their national capital,” said Senator the Hon. Scullion.

Brick by Brick is designed for people of all ages (recommended 4+) and abilities. Construction sheets are available for visitors to recreate the major institutions, bridges and attractions that identify the capital, including Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial and the Captain Cook Memorial Jet. These constructions range in skill level from easy, to moderate and hard. 

Join the fun at Casuarina Library and let your creativity run wild. Design your own capital city using Lego or build an iconic Canberra institution.
