Fun for kids is a plus but many minuses. My son loved being able to run the gardens and enjoyed pressing the buttons to make the trains go. He also enjoyed the mini train ride that circles the gardens and lets you see the pieces of the displays that would otherwise be overlooked. From an adults' perspective however, I was... More

I've been coming here since I was a kid and they just keep adding more and more and making it extra cool. Pay attention to the tiny details, there is so much humour in the displays with characters doing funny things and pop culture hidden everywhere - but you miss them if you only pay attention to the 'big picture'....

I suppose I am biased because I am a fan of miniatures. This place is quite a secret destination in Canberra that lovers of architecture should not miss. It represents different landmarks of the world. But of course this is not as grand as the Mini Europe in Brussels or the France Miniature near Paris. But by Australian standard, this... More

One must visit this miniature village it is outside Canberra but not to far, it is worth the entry fee and the time to walk around you feel you are in england.

Someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to reproduce various street scenes from villages throughout the English countryside. There is a lot of detail in some of the models and several working trains. The staff were very helpful and friendly and they had a lot of touristy stuff for sale in their gift shop.

We had some time to fill in so thought we would call in and have a look. It is an amazing place. Everything is in miniature and down to the smallest detail is as perfect as possible. The international section is almost breath taking as the detail is so authentic. Go there take children they will love it.

The miniature looked a little worn out with water spilled everywhere. The garden was not that beautiful, maybe because I was there in early spring. I was expecting to see more miniature in international section but I did not see many of it. But maybe it would be enough to attract children to love them.

Well this was somewhere my Mum wanted to visit and I really wouldn't have gone out of my way to come here, however I really enjoyed both the miniature models and the spectacular gardens. The flowers where much better than Floriade, I was really surprised, absolutely beautiful. We visited in October so lots was in bloom!!

Right from when we arrived we knew we were in for something special! The gardens out the front were an appetiser for what's inside. The miniature village, along with the international section was truly worth the visit. The main advise I could give would be to take it in slowly; the detail in the exhibits is truly amazing! Another bit... More
