Australia's top 10 greatest moments from the past 50 years will be re-created in LEGO as part of LEGO's Creating History campaign. Australians have until August 1 to vote for their top 10 greatest moments.

The top 10 greatest moments will then be photographed by British photographer, Mike Stimpson.
"I’ve had a lot of fun playing with Lego product in the past, duplicating everything from Buzz Aldrin's first steps on the moon to Maradona's infamous 'hand of God' in the 1986 soccer World Cup,"
Mr Stimpson said.
"I’m looking forward to seeing what favourite moments Australians select from their history book, and immortalising them forever with Lego Minifigures."
