Join the club and wow us with your building skills!

As some of may already know, the WA Brick Society produces the largest single Lego fan display in Western Australia! We put it on display at the Model Train Exhibition in June, to the delight of the thousands of visitors. We have been voted People's Choice Award for many years as a result! Our team has been creating fantastic and unique models that go on our sprawling layouts. We have built bustling cities, mesmerising trains, rocking concerts, speeding racetracks, sunny beaches and so much more!



Fun fact: the club president designed and built the longest Lego bridge in a layout in 2013!
Imagine participating in a project of this incredible scale!



Don’t have enough Lego at home to build the creation of your dreams? As a member, you can use the huge collection that is the result of over four decades of collecting Lego! Imagine what you could build with over a million Lego pieces!

Even if you’re new to Lego, or returning from a Lego break, this is your chance to dive into a supportive group of brick-minded individuals! Not a Master Builder? Well, neither am I! We can help you build up your skills with the brick. You may even be able teach us a new technique or two!

If you have skills in other areas other than Lego, you can still contribute! We are always looking for help in engineering, display planning, truck driving, photography and publicity.

Brilliant Bricktober

Bricktober was a resounding success last weekend! Lots of exciting and inspiring Lego displays were up for the public to view, made by some great local builders, who were displaying their Lego for the first time.
The kids loved looking at the exhibits, participating in the building competitions and playing around in the Lego playpit.
There was plenty of Lego sets and minifigures for sale and Bricktober merchandise - caps, T-shirts and badges.
Mr Bricktober was there, along with Darth Vader, a few Stormtroopers from the 501st Legion, and Anna and Elsa from Frozen, meeting and greeting the visitors.

Many thanks to Stephen and Joanna Kendall for organising Bricktober, and cheers to the volunteers, Rotary Club and fellow exhibitors all contributing to make it all worthwhile.

We can now start thinking about Bricktober 2016!
