  • Amazing place! Fun and interactive learning space about the planning and design of Canberra. Great for school groups, visiting tourists and for families on weekends. The exhibition is free and has a lego area for the kids! Canberra Information and Visitor Centre and cafe in the building so a hub for all your tourist needs. Grab a coffee head on in!
  • Since it was designed purely as a capital of a country I am pleased with it was nicely designed and much pleased with its layout. The facilities spreads around are equally good and well controlled. I love to live in Canberra due to its low density in population.
  • Tired displays. Limited scope. No Brisbane or Hobart stands. Its free... good!
  • Floriarde wonderful experience took grandchildren they too were fascinated and in awe. The displays were creative and well thought out. A lot of people including myself took the chance to photograph the venue sights . The lake water features due crowds especially the globe. Food prices up market prices not all that suitable for ordinary families. Only thing purchased on way out was an ice cream at regular pricing. The walk was at least near 2km away from where car was parked. But am pleased we saw it. Highly recommend to view .
  • love this place you can hire bikes kids love it. good park for outdoors.
