The National Arboretum, Canberra - in a matchbox
THE NATIONAL ARBORETUM, CANBERRA AUSTRALIA
A regular matchbox is given a makeover to become a cute tiny version of the great buildings of Canberra Australia and region. A keepsake you can fit in your hand. Photographs cover the box.
A 250-hectare arboretum created after the area was burned out as a result of the 2001 and 2003 bushfires. The Himalayan Cedar forest lost about one third of its trees and the commercial Radiata Pine plantation was burned out, allowing the arboretum to be created.
The Matchbox measures 5.4cm wide, 3.7cm tall and 1.7cm deep when closed.
The exact people and furniture may differ from pictured as each is individually hand-made. If you have a particular configuration of people/furniture that you'd like, please let us know.
A lot of love has gone into the making of our dollhouses and each is a totally unique upcycled piece. They are significantly handmade and as such have their own personality and imperfections. Young people should be supervised and care should be taken when handling them.
