The private company behind Legoland has purchased Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wildlife World and the Sydney Tower Observation Deck from Village Roadshow. The deal includes ”an understanding to consider” developing brands such as Legoland in Australia. I can’t help but wonder how all this ties in with the major LEGO events happening at Sydney Aquarium this summer, including the opening of a LEGO Store outside the Aquarium, spotted by BDU reader LegoFan on Friday.
I don’t think anyone is suggesting that the Aquarium will be replaced with a Legoland, but definitely it’s a positive sign for the further development of LEGO attractions in Australia.

UPDATE: BDU reader Marty reports that “The Darling Harbour Lego store is temporary and staffed by aquarium staff. Poor range aimed at very young kids”. Still, hopefully it is a sign of better things to come.
