A great adventure area for young children, as they discover miniature versions of such exotic places as Machu Picchu, Stonehenge, temples in India and ancient ruins in the Middle East. Also providing beautiful gardens for the older generations to enjoy.

The garden is rather small but we did enjoy and respect all the efforts that they've put to create beautiful miniature villages. All the bonsai, trees, vines... are taken care greatly. Worth a visit when you are in Canberra.

Hi Anh P, Thank you for your lovely review, glad you enjoyed our display. We don't have any bonsai at Cockington Green Gardens, we use miniature shrubs and trees and prune them until such a time as they need to be replaced. Many Thanks

A neat little experience - one of three main tourist attractions at Gold Creek - the focus on non-city England is quaint and interesting for people who have been there.
