The tiny figures were great to see, the villages had so much detail. The little train was fun to go on. We did however find this to be a very short adventure and was overpriced for what it is.

Nice garden. We really enjoy our visit there. The only disappointing thing was the extra charge of $3 dollar for a 3 minutes your on the little steam train. I think it could be included in the $18.50 entrance fee..

The work involved in this miniature city is unbelieveable. Particularly liked the international section, displaying all the major monuments of the world. Great place to take the family and have a picnic or order from the cafe.

I visited here in June this year over the long weekend. I personally enjoyed it but can see it wouldn't be open to everyone's tastes. The houses are remarkable and you are able to read a background behind each house which makes it more interesting. What I loved about this place was the extra figurines they add into the landscapes.... More

Visited Cockington Green on our way home from Canberra today, was very underwhelming to say the least. Looking very tired and worn. Not worth the $18.50 we paid sadly.

This is the perfect place to go for a Saturday/Sunday family or couples day out. Pack your lunch and enjoy the picnic grounds, BBQ or the lovely resturant where you can eat your meal either inside or outside. Then have a ride on the Miniature train as it travels around the miniature embassies enclosure. The miniature gardens of old English... More

Took the kids to cockington green as a last minute thing. Well we had a great time, the displays are set up beautifully and you really appreciate all the work that goes into the gardens. The train ride was lots of fun and lunch was yummy too
