Among the colourful flowers sit a collection of miniature displays made of little figures, buildings and scenes from Great Britain. There are a variety of displays spread throughout the miniature gardens. Each display is created by hand and has its own little story.
Displays include little English cottages, cricket fields, train stations and so much more!
The Cockington Green Gardens are well looked after and maintained by the gardeners and staff, and it was common to see the gardeners trimming and attending to the displays during our visit.
Further down the path is the International Display, a collection of miniature replicas of landmark buildings from around the world. Each country has its own interesting fact about the landmark and how it was created.
The Cockington Green Gardens has an accessible toilet located on site along with two accessible gift shops. The Parsons Nose Cafe is wheelchair accessible and is known for its famous home-made scones. They also offer family friendly miniature steam train rides around the gardens, but unfortunately, this isn’t wheelchair accessible.

We had a lovely accessible visit at the Cockington Greens Gardens. The gardens are well setup, and the mini displays are very beautiful and cleverly created!
If you are looking for a relaxing accessible activity to do while in Canberra, why not check out the Cockington Green Gardens.
