  • From the moment you enter you find yourself transported into a little world and with every step the children, and your child within, finds something new to wonder at. It was a pure joy to visit.

  • Charming outing with small kids (if you can keep them off the displays). The steam train goes around the loop twice so we didn't have any whinging when we got off. The cafe has pre-prepared food like boxed cake and sandwiches so it isn't very exciting, but the decor is sweet and it means there isn't a wait for food. There is a children's playground which was seen better days.
  • This is a lovely place to take a family with young children. Our daughter enjoyed it thoroughly. Besides the wonderful miniature buildings (scenes from famous places around the world) there is a great little train to ride. As with most such places there is a cafĂ© with affordable food and all the usual facilities.
  • I preferred the international area as it was well designed and had more details. I think the ticket is a little bit expensive. Kids will have fun there.
  • Is a great place to take kids, but overall the experience only lasted 30-40 minutes, which was quite short. Also the drawback of not allowing pets is quite a disappointment.
  • Should definitely checkout this place if youre in Canberra with a group of ppl
