  • I would not recommend this place to anyone who has a full dose of chromesomes. I cannot imagine anyone who would find this place interesting aprt from an escaped mental patient.  more »
  • This view is really a little bit bad. This is a very expensive ticket, and it's very small. If you have children, you can take a look here, and then you'll be able to sit on a small bike or a picnic. If it is only adults who really don't recommend coming here

  • 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.
  • A stunning experience and time went by enjoying the miniature models crafted with an eye for details. Truly an amazing effort to put it all together and present it so thoughtfully. The parking is free and plenty of space. Don't miss it!
  • Good place to go, although a little small, you can probably see it all in under an hour, unless you're like me and take a lot of pictures. The international section with miniature landmarks from across the world is very nice. It's a very clean place, very well maintained plants and display items, and they have a cafe and a small kids play area. Entry is a bit pricey, probably because they know it's not a place someone would visit often as I don't think much changes there in terms of what they have on display. The toilets are ok, clean, but not the nicest. There is also a miniature train ride for $3 per person that takes you around the whole place twice. Lots of nice colourful flowers too.
  • A nice place that's well worth a visit, but don't plan on spending a whole day here as it's not huge. Kids would probably enjoy the train. A classic Canberra tourist destination
  • Awesome little miniature village. Is a little expensive but when you think of the work that goes into maintaining this place it makes sense. Really great place. Would be great for kids.
