The gardens were lovely to view and well maintained. The models were very impressive. Took around 90min to look and enjoy the grounds before stopping by the cafe for a drink after. Enjoyable outing!

Well looked after grounds and interesting models but quite expensive so probably would not repeat the visit. Kids enjoyed the train

We spent about an hour wondering around the Cockington Green, the detail in the miniatures was amazing. The international part was interesting. The gardens were exceptionally well manicured and the detail was amazing.

I was expecting this to be very outdated, but it was immaculately maintained and was so fun to see all the miniature displays. I'm so glad I insisted on going. We traveled with kids between 1 and 5 and they all got a lot out of it and my husband and I enjoyed choosing our favourite houses. There are buttons... More

Love going and taking the grandkids, every year it has something new. It does get a bit spoilt though by the people that can't read the signs and walk over the displays and the maze but understand that the owners can't fence it in. Taking this into account it is a great day, fun on the train and drooling at... More

We had taken our two children there perhaps 24 years ago and now with one of my children and my grandson visited again. Fantastic way to spend time in Canberra. The 2 year old was entertained for at least 2.5 hours as were the "oldies". Attention to detail is exceptional--we noted the addition of mobile phones for the people waiting... More

Great for the kids. The miniatures had so much detail. Check out the dog with sausages being chased by the butcher and the streaker on the soccer field. Also the cricket match.

Took 6 and a 8 year old boys. Reluctant at first then after the mini train ride really into the international section. Provoked lots of conversation.
