When I read about this miniature land, I informed the family and the kid's were very, very excited to go. We purchased the Family Pass and in we went. There wasn't much of a crowd which was great for ... more »

Amazing! The detail of every model makes it appear as though you've actually visited the locations. Everything is labelled and it's even educational. There's some bit of humor in some of the models like a pet stegasaurus being walked down a street! My 4 year old loved it and just wanted to go around more.

I came to this place when I was a kid. Returned 20 years later, and although I didn't remember much from back then, I was left with the feeling that not much has changed since back then. The buildings and gardens look amazing. But the miniature people all look like they were made from clay, for a project by school kids. This place is being "maintained" by the same family it has been in for 4 generations (apparently) But I can't help but think that the passion taken to start this place has long since disappeared. This place was really great in the 90's. But unfortunately it hasn't really kept up with the times.

Ok for one time visit. Miniature buildings models were fun to watch. Some models were broken/non functional. Well maintained but Entry fee is too pricey. Parking available.

Kids loved Cockington green. One cafe onsite or pack lunch. Toilet facilities. Best to go on a clear day as open outdoor not undercover.

A must visit if you are visiting Canberra. Only ten minutes off the highland, the place offers miniatures of famous places of Europe, made to scale. The village charm, coffee at the square, and leisurely walk.
