Abingdon Miniature Village

Abingdon Miniature Village features a display of Miniature Historic Buildings of the UK, landscaped gardens, a 1000 square metre hedge maze, grassed picnic areas and Heritage Tea Rooms. Abingdon Miniature Village is named after the town of Abingdon in Oxfordshire on the River Thames which is the oldest continually inhabited town in the UK. Buildings such as the Abingdon County Hall, Church of St Nic's and Old Anchor Inn pub have been meticulously reproduced in miniature. Stage 1 of the Gardens contains over 4000 plants with 250 different species. Abingdon Miniature Village is located just south of Perth at Mandurah and has proved to be an enchanted wonderland for all to enjoy.
