Gold Creek Village

This quaint village within Canberra is full of fun for young minds, from dinosaurs roaring to life through to gardens dotted with scenes from around the globe. Located in the north Canberra suburb of Nicholls, it's a winner with families, stealing first place for school holiday activities and the best things to do with primary school aged kids. 

Highlights of the area

Lots of family fun

This village is bursting with kids' activities from digging for dinosaur bones through to meeting reptiles.

Stunning First Nations art

Art lovers can purchase artwork at Aarwun Gallery or the Aboriginal Dreamings Gallery.

Kid-friendly food

Enjoy lunch in the beer garden of a Tudor inn, indulge at The Lolly Shop or head to the speciality ice creamery.

Children playing and running amongst the miniature sculptures and displays at Cockington Green.

Cockington Green Gardens

Take a trip around the globe at Cockington Green Gardens, home to intricate displays of tiny hand-crafted buildings from more than 30 nations. From Scotland’s Braemer Castle to Peru’s Machu Picchu, marvel at the attention to detail in every creation - many of which take thousands of hours to handmake.

Take a miniature steam train ride through the gardens and keep an eye out for humourous inclusions in each display, including a streaking cricketer and The Stig visiting a famous landmark.
