A great garden to explore! Kids loved the interactive parts where they could press a button and drive a train etc. Most of it went over our kids heads (aged 4 & 3) but it was still enjoyable for us watching the kids run around. Very well maintained.

We took two of our grandsons here and spent around four hours roaming around. They loved it and since it was winter and frosty there were not many people there so they could spend time operating the trains. I image if it was busy it would not be so enjoyable. It cost $67 for the four of us so a... More

Superb structures built in miniature, including structures from around the world reproduced in great detail. The steam train ride costs $3 and will amuse kids. Provides inspiration for people of all ages. Good location, located beside the bus-stop. Great value for money.

This is a delightful garden with excellent, detailed displays. Take it all in ... slow down ... everywhere you look carefully, you will find adorable little details and surprises, riddles and special features. The train rides are good, simple, old-fashioned fun and a great way to preview some of the garden displays. This is a live garden, so the seasonal... More

My visit was a last minute trip but a lovely way to spend a few hours. Lovely gardens and exhibits. Would be a great place to take my Grandchildren

I had visited this attraction many years ago and it appeared the same now as then. If anything was different I didn't see it. Still enjoyed this visit.

OMG, what a cute place. I didn't think I would like it, but wow what an awesome place. We were there for about an hour and half. The cafe was alright however a little overpriced. We didn't have any kids with us but other children really seemed to be enjoying themselves. You were able to press different buttons to start... More

Many hours of work have gone into creating Cockington Green and whoever is in charge definitely has a sense of humour. I appreciated the aliens on the roof using the public toilets and Darth Vader duelling with Luke Skywalker in the bushes. However the attraction is overpriced for something that takes only an hour or so to see and it... More

We loved this place you can easily spend hours checking out all the different things and riding on the train is a good way to see thing's from a different angle.

It was definitely worth a busy but in my opinion overpriced at $67 entry for a family. We spent an hour or so wandering around admiring the miniature models but with so many free entry to museums in Canberra there are much better attractions to visit on a long weekend.
