Cockington Green Gardens is constructing a version of the original Canberra House to sit in the beautifully landscaped gardens of its world of miniature architecture. The original Canberra House, or ‘The Residency', was commissioned by King O'Malley and sat in the grounds of the Australian National University. It was designed by John Smith Murdoch (the Commonwealth's first architect) and constructed in 1912-13 to house the Administrator of the Federal Territory, David Miller. The garden of Canberra House was planned by Thomas Weston. If you haven't been to Cockington Green Gardens for awhile, 2013 is an ideal time to explore the Gardens and have a look at this most recent addition.
