Studying media/law at UNSW. Can't decide between being a journalist like Clark Kent, a lawyer like Elle Woods or running an inn like Lorelai Gilmore. Until then...I write.

Every one of us has at one point wanted to know what it feels like to be a giant among little village people. Cockington Green Gardens gives you a chance to experience just that.

A beautiful landscape full of miniature cottages, castles, churches, and villagers, Cockington Green transports you to a whole new miniature world.

It's not only the English architecture that you get witness, there is a new international area full of architecture from around the world. It's perfect for those who have always wanted to travel but haven't had the opportunity.

There's also a barbecue area with a playground, a mini train ride that tours the garden, gift shop and plant shop. My friends and I went for an afternoon, had a barbecue for lunch and then enjoyed the train ride. And make sure you look closely at the displays, there's plenty of strange and cheeky additions.

Cockington Green Gardens is definitely worth the visit. For $18.50 for adult admission and $10.50 for children, it's such a great deal.
