The Shamrock Hotel

This MOC is a LEGO replica of The Shamrock Hotel which stands on the corner of Pall Mall and Williamson Street in my home town of Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. The building itself comprises of four storeys of red Bendigo brick covered in a decorative rendered façade and features an elaborate mansard roof and two storey verandah.

The building was designed by Bendigo architect Phillip Kennedy and built in 1897, and you can find out more about it on the Victorian Heritage Register.

I have chosen to recreate the building largely as it stands today including the bar, foyer, staircases, reception area, laneway, Bob Boutique, commercial kitchen, meeting rooms, The Federation Room, and three guest suites.

The Federation room is set up with a wedding reception in full swing, commemorating the 3rd of November 2012 when my wife Kara and I held our wedding reception there – you can see Kara and I as minifigs.

It’s a very impressive build! The details on the façade are beautiful and it does look like the real Shamrock Hotel. Applause!
