Very pretty, and they have a family rate for entry. Gardens are very nice, miniature houses in the gardens, interesting things inside, and outside. Food available and quite good. A pleasant afternoon for a family. Walking around outside is happy family time, mild exercise, and it isn't overcrowded.

It is a relatively short trip out of Canberra, it is a miniature village divided into two parts, one part is different towns and villages in England and the second part is different buildings from around the world, most not very well known ones. Was interesting and the owners and workers have a good sense of humour with some interesting... More

Really nice start to our weekend in Canberra and fantastic for 2 seven year olds. There wasn't a lot of interactive stuff but the displays were educational and humorous. Kids had a ball and actually learnt some stuff without realising they did!! Wouldn't spend more than an hour and you'll get to see everything.

I'm sure some people may love it but we are a Questacon family. Same price but a lot more amazing. Maybe we are too young.

Cockington Green is the miniature town that delivers miniature good times for all. Keep an eye out for the miniature people doing rude things all over the place.

Superb display with well-maintained gardens and miniature international buildings from around the world. We photographed some of the amazing displays and tried out all of the hands-on ones. Better than some we've seen in England when we lived there!
