Abingdon Miniature Village
Abingdon Miniature Village is named after the town of Abingdon in Oxfordshire, the oldest continually inhabited town in the UK. The miniature village displays scale model replicas of some of the historic buildings of Abingdon, as well as other notable buildings of the UK, such as Shakespeare's birthplace and home.
Abingdon Miniature Village is set amongst 4 acres of award winning botanical gardens and includes water features and a Koi pond, exotic birds, miniature trains and toy trains for the kids to enjoy (Thomas and friends).
Our 1000m2 traditional hedge maze is a popular attraction for visitors to Abingdon and there is also an open Labyrinth running maze for kids.
Ruby House is home to our traditional Tea Rooms, a popular spot for visitors and are also open to the public. You can enjoy a Devonshire Tea, morning or afternoon teas and light lunches in our lovingly restored 1938 Palmyra house or in the tranquil Wisteria covered tea garden.
About UsDisplay of miniature heritage buildings of the UK, set amongst 2 acres of wonderfully landscaped gardens. English Maze, Ornamental Lake, Miniature Steam train, Plant Shop, Souvenir Shop and there are Disabled Facilities available.
Tearooms “Ruby House” is our traditional tearooms. Built in 1940 as a private residence in Palmyra, a suburb of Perth, it was to be demolished to make way for a new residence. Realizing its potential, Sonia, one of Abingdon Miniature Village's original owners, had the old house transported, and then spent 2 years renovating & decorating inside & out to reflect its heritage character & Old World charm.
Being a traditional tearoom the menu is simple but far from plain. Morning & afternoon teas, devonshires & light lunches are available.
Seating 62 indoors and a further 40 on the expansive verandahs and shaded courtyard, Ruby House also caters for coaches and group booking.
After 4 years of planning and development Abingdon Miniature Village in Mandurah opened to the public on 1st March 2003, and has proved to be an enchanted wonderland for adults & children alike. Although developed particularly for seniors, it appears that there is something special for all of the family.

Our gardens extend over 2 acres and were designed to be the setting for displaying our miniature models. They contain over 4000 plants of 300 different species and varieties. Conifers have been extensively used due to their many varied sizes, form and colours. Continious clipping, at least weekly during summer, of the plants is required to keep them in proportion to the models. The dwarf varieties that are used in the gardens of the models will eventually grow too large for the purpose and be moved to other areas in the gardens.
