He had fun picking out the animals and anything else that interested him. There is some humour thrown in too. Like... More

This was our second trip here. It was late in the day so we chose to skip the train ride and our kids (aged 5 7 and 9) didn't seem to care as they could run around and check stuff out ahead of us. A kind staff member went out of his way to fix the out of order mini... More

Loved it! Had heard mixed reviews on it but had to see for ourselves and we were pleasantly surprised. Easy accessibility around the gardens. Gardens were well maintained. Buildings and attention to detail was fantastic. Loved all the buildings from all around the world. The train looked like it would be good. The only thing that could have improvement would... More

Took the boyfriend here as he hadn't been before. Had fun checking out the exhibits and the funny in jokes placed in them by the builders (look out for the Tardis!). The international exhibit is also a fun way to look at buildings and structures across the world.

Wonderful place for all ages to enjoy. You discover something new in the displays everytime you visit. Enjoy a stroll in the garden, a coffee in the cute cafe, a ride on the train all while marveling at the miniature displays.

What a fabulous time I had here with my two young sons. They delighted in the trains, the train ride was fabulous and my oldest son smiled the whole ride! The gardens are stunning and well maintained. It was easy to navigate this place with a pram and there were onsite baby change facilities. Parking was easy. The staff were... More

The kids loved it and I enjoyed it too. The place is quite big and I definitely think everyone should visit if in Canberra. The train ride is not worth it, not so much for $3 but simply because walking is so much better. Recommended!

When someone explained this attraction was just miniatures that was the understatement of the year. This park takes a scene and brings the moment and the essence of each location to life. PAINSTAKINGLY recreations of events from around the globe. It was great to visit, but once is enough.
