This was only a two day event and was wayyy back in January. Tickets were not sold at entrance or at the venue, but available online. I missed this twice because by the time I found out about the event it was already too late. Being the good kiasu Asian, I decided to put a reminder on my phone calendar to remind myself when the ticket started on sale... so I was there at Brickvention Australia 2016.
This event was held at the Royal Exhibition Building, a very beautiful building and there is no way you can miss it.

Photos were encouraged in this exhibition, so this is a very photo loaded post.
There were a lot of projects on displayed, some were by kids and some adult. I think there were also competition with age grouping as I could see some had a "1", "2" or "3" tag on their display description board. The general display area were divided in rows, the middle one usually are bigger project. One of my favourite was a project displayed in the middle row, it was a very big one with moving trains, buildings of different area.
There was a section on Melbourne CBD, specifically Little Collins Street and it was nostalgic to see the places I frequent and walked passed with friends.

I like it that details like these were included. Cute :P

If Star Wars don't rock your boat, heaps of cartoon characters to keep you happy too.
|Err... Does Simpson count as cartoon character?|
Side note: Rainy day - best kind of day to do nothing and stay home!
