International and interstate tourists have another reason to visit Queensland after Australia’s first LEGO store opened on the Gold Coast today.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the new attraction, based at Dreamworld, would be a favourite for people of all ages and would help bolster local jobs and encourage more tourists to visit the Gold Coast.

 

“What we will see here is 20 staff working in the store to help LEGO enthusiasts and tourists has a terrific experience.” Premier Palaszczuk said.

“That’s on top of the 50 on-site jobs that were generated through the 7 months it took Dreamworld to build such a wonderful attraction, plus another 70 jobs as part of ongoing projects.”

“Not only is this a fun place for people to visit, it’s yet another reason for people who come to Queensland for the Commonwealth Games next year to get out and about and expand their Queensland experience beyond the Games.” Premier Palaszczuk said.

Tourism Minister Kate Jones said the flagship LEGO store was another welcome boost for the local tourism industry.

“The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s major tourist destinations showcasing the best of Queensland to visitors from around the world.” Ms. Jones said.
