COCKINGTON GREEN in Canberra, part 1

Back in July, on our Canberra, Australia trip, we took two buses to visit Cockington Green. This is situated in one of the outer suburbs of Canberra. 
I recommend you go to this tourist attraction. It was so gratifying to see both my family members showing such childlike delight and joy while noticing all the details. It is extremely well done and you don’t need to take anything, unless the weather is showery, then take rain gear. We had a perfect, sunny day in mid Winter, and it doesn’t usually snow there. There are alot of photos, so I’ve broken this post up into parts.

Being on a tight budget, we had brought hot soup, (that I had heated up in the hotel microwave oven), in thermoses and sat, after our journey, to have it in the attractive front garden before we went in. This is the beautiful European style main house:

We went through that to get to the extensive back garden. These are full size models of kangaroo and emu:

The first section we came to, is set in a representative UK village. Miniature models:

Please come back for part 2!

Cath, these miniatures are amazing. The details and the time to construct are unbelievable. I am smitten by the lovely English buildings. Thank you for sharing at Gardens Galore. I am going to post 2.

I am besotted with miniatures. The magic is in the detail, and there is a lot of detail in these. Thank you.

Welcome, Amy! Check out the other posts in this series about Cockington Green and others on Canberra. We love having visitors in Australia! There were tour buses dropping off when I was at that attraction.
