Canberra seems to have a thing for miniatures. There is, of course, the legendary Gallery of Small Things. And it's impossible to disregard Cockington Green Gardens.

This detailed miniature village is housed in one of the most impeccably kept gardens in the region. The picturesque foliage surrounds a series of tiny buildings on a large scale, featuring a castle, revolving windmill, and the creme-de-la-creme of dolls houses. There's definitely something to delight all kids, both big and little.

Also not to be missed is a ride on the miniature train through the gardens — a motorised version of an old fashioned steam train that winds its way through the bucolic scenery.
