  • Should visit. The gardens are well maintained and seeing how much work has gone into not just creating the scenes but also keeping them looking good it’s nice to know it is in good hands. A very good family destination and a must see if you are visiting Canberra with children.
  • Beautifully presented gardens and miniatures. There were little in-jokes in the form of specific people or scenes from films and TV sprinkled around, which added a touch of humour to the place. It was an easy walk and good experience for kids, parents and older people too. The steam train wasn't running on the day we went, but we didn't mind as the experience was still a great day out.
