We Humans of the Brochure spent a memorable, fairy- light-strewn night out at Cockington Green Gardens, Canberra’s own miniature village. Mark and Rob have been creating intricate building replicas here to delight local Canberrans, as well as interstate and international guests for 14 years. This is not only a miniature village; the Gardens feature a miniature maze, the Parson’s Nose Garden Cafe and a miniature steam train.
Iconic buildings from 30 different countries are also represented to the smallest detail. This is a work of love and attention to detail. There are funny and cute little details to look out for. Flynn is pretending to push a trolley like the little person to the right of him. :)
Take a moment to see Flynn’s take:
Make sure you stop and really take time to admire the handiwork on display here. The average miniature building take 1000 hours to create. This one, a replica of Turkey’s Kucuksu Pavilion took 3000 hours!!
Proud little Aussie
There is a little waterfall.
There is a sweet little shop to help kick-start your own miniature collection.
We have and will continue to keep returning to Cockington Green Gardens for a fun couple of hours out. It is open every day from 9:30-5pm bar Christmas and Boxing Day. Get stuck into the adventure yourselves!!
