Garden
“Cockington Green Gardens is one of Canberra's quiet achievers. You could quite easily overlook it but don't, it is truly unforgettable experience. The display of meticulously handcrafted miniature buildings from around the world is set in a beautifully landscaped gardens. Experience a ride on the miniature steam train, view the 34 room dolls house ‘Waverley’, or enjoy homemade scones in the Garden Cafe. Cockington Green balances nicely all the other heady Canberra attractions!”
