  • Wonderful! This is a very cute place to be with your family. Beautiful building and amazing miniatures that makes you feel like living in a fairytale world. The flowers are colourful and very romantic. A well-maintained park that makes you feel happy all day.
  • A short drive from Canberra. There is a wonderful array of to-scale model buildings with several interesting dioramas set up. The small train that can be ridden around the well kept gardens was a nice way to wrap up the trip. A good choice for a day outing for families. There are also several attractions nearby and cafes for lunch.
  • A must place to visit. Also, a good place for taking photos. Kids love the train ride though it won't last much. I felt this should have been an indoor place. Otherwise credits to those who have been creating the place.
  • it is worthwhile to take a visit. This cute place includes world architectures within one park. The small rooms and buildings in the rose room are really interesting. The miniature trains and windmills in the international display area can be controled by visitors. We also took the steam Train. If visitors plan to take the steam Train, buy coffee and some souvenirs, then the Value Pack for two adults is a good choice.
  • Gardens were beautiful and charming. We were there on a perfect day. Staff weren't friendly at all. Seemed perturbed that our family showed up an hour before closing. Cafe shuts earlier than attraction. Expensive for what it is.
