Cockington Green

If you grew up in Canberra, you would have been to Cockington Green at least once. I’ve spoken before about how much I love Questacon and Telstra Tower, but I’d forgotten entirely about Cockington Green. It’s nestled in amongst a score of other touristy places in Gungahlin, and worth a visit for anyone over two (although 2-5 is a dangerous age, because it’s definitely not for touching).

My mum, my sister, Louisette, and my sister’s two girls just visited Cockington Green for the first time in a decade – maybe even two decades.

It was also the first time Louisette and her toddler cousin rode in a double stroller together.

The toddler likes trains and was totally overwhelmed by the experience.

When we finished the ride she refused to get off, and it wasn’t easy to extricate her from the fence, either.

Read the full article (for which I now get paid, and paid per reader) here.

  1. It’s definitely a worthwhile attraction, and one that many don’t think to see at first. I’m glad you remembered it!

    Louisette’s toddler cousin looks very suspicious of Louisette in that first picture in the pram.
