The Tidbinbilla Reserve... - Canberra
The Tidbinbilla Reserve... National Parks/Reserves/Countryside Review

<body>
<p><font face='Times New Roman' size='4'>The <b><a href='http://www.act.gov.au/environ/tidbin.html' target = new> Tidbinbilla Reserve</a></b> where you can walk among koalas, kangaroos and wallabies and catch a glimpse of the elusive platypus. Experience Tidbinbilla's Aboriginal and European heritage. Learn about endangered species or see how many of the bird species you can spot. Walk to moist fern gullies. Only 40 minutes from the city centre, this piece of nature is one of the most beautiful places in Canberra. You can walk around here for the all day, and maybe you go more then one time. For the thirsty between us; there is a café as well! </font></p>

Australia's largest, permanent display of dinosaurs, fossils and prehistoric material. You will come face to face with Tyrannosaurus Rex or the fossilized Sabre Tooth Tiger.

Visit Great Britain in the... Cockington Green Review

<body>
<p><font face='Times New Roman' size='4'>Visit <b>Great Britain</b> in the sun instead of smog, rain and cold. <b><a href='http://www.cockington-green.com.au' target = new> Cockington Green</a></b> in <b><a href='http://www.virtualtourist.com/m/.53989/article/857/1/'> Gold Creek</a></b> offers you that. Cockington Green is a display of <b>miniature buildings</b> and <b>gardens</b> of <b>Great Britain</b> and is really worth a visit. Cockington Green was named after the quaint little village of
<b>Cockington</b> in <b>Torquay</b>, <b>Devon</b>. In 1972, during a visit to, England, the Sarah family visited the Model Village at <b>Babacombe</b> near Torquay in Devon. They where so impressed that, when they returned to Australia they decided to research the possibility of construction of a similar display in Australia. After about 12 months of research into the financial viability, model construction and availability of suitable plants and shrubs, the decision was made to proceed with the project. Late in
<b>1976</b>, work commenced on construction of the <b> Main Entrance building</b> (<font color='#0000FF'>see picture</font>) and landscaping the display. </font></p> <p align='center'><font face='Times New Roman' size='3' color='#800000'> I know a little garden close, Set thick with lily and red rose, Where I would wander if I might, From dewy dawn to dewy night... - The Life and Death of Jason William Morris.</font></p>
