Although the garden basically exhibits miniatures of native houses and exquisite structures in various countries, visiting the Cockington Green Gardens and smelling the scent of its charming flora is almost like being in a fairytale.
Originally, the garden parades an English setting with a miniature of the Cockington village sitting on the polychromatic flowers and shrubs. Boosting the English tone are Scotland’s Baraemar Castle miniature, the village green’s cricket playoff miniature, and the far-famed Stonehenge miniature. - Things to do in Canberra
As it earned heaps of awards through time for such fascinating, one-of-a-kind exhibit, the Cockington Green Gardens grew into an international exhibit displaying notable structures from different countries. Of course, putting Australia on top of the list, the Wheelers Hut, the Railway Superintendents Cottage Goolwa, and the Australian Gold Mining setting take part on the miniature exhibit. A few more notable creations snapping the limelight of the miniature display are the Borobudur Temple of Indonesia, the St. Mark’s Church, Zagreb in Croatia, and the Karlstejn Castle in Czech Republic.
There are galleries boasting their high-priced art pieces and radical inventions. There are those devoted to sumptuous, intricately designed sculptures and clay figures. But this one is but an exhibit showcasing the best of the countries architecture from the simplistic, native dwelling places to majestic castles around the world. - Things to do in Canberra
