I have wanted to visit this lovely little place since it first opened and I was a child. Getting through to the park is slow as it is through one narrow door to the till at the counter of the shop. It is expensive to visit but we took the cheaper option of the all in one ticket which gives... More

Hi Lesley N, Glad you finally got to see us. Sorry to hear you had trouble moving through our entry, we do open an additional entry at our busy periods of the year. I was surprised to hear you had trouble with our pathways as they are a minimum of 1.8m which allows a pram and wheelchair to pass each... More

Someone has taken a lot of time to put this place together. Whilst it is a bit pricey the work that has gone into the displays is worth it. There are some small repairs required to some displays but you can still get the idea of what other country living is like.

A lovely couple of hours spent looking at all the miniature displays. The Springtime flowers were amazing throughout the gardens, it felt like a scaled down version of Floriade.

When you're visiting Canberra, don't forget to pop in here. It's one of a kind experience. Interesting miniatures of houses and monuments from different countries. It's enjoyable and educational. Train ride inside Great Cafe Plenty Parking space Close to shops and other tourist attractions

This delightful miniature garden, a copy more or less of a village in Devon is a must see especially for children. Now don't be put off by the idea of a miniature garden as "for children only" The garden is so well laid out and covers several themes. Its worth more that a quick look even for a rest from... More
