COCKINGTON GREEN - part 3 in Canberra


Part 3. Please read the previous 2 posts in this series.

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.

Some of the displays, like this one, have push button activation:
































This is the end of the UK section of Cockington Green gardens, please do come back for Part 4 of this series, where I will begin to show the International section.

Cath, your photos are fabulous. I will revisit and check out all of the details and there are hundreds. Stonehenge, really remarkable! Again, thank you for sharing at Gardens Galore!

The details are truly remarkable. This had to be quite the labor of love for those who started it all. Love the village especially.

Cath I could easily spend a day or two here just admiring these miniatures. All that is missing is some fairies.
