A lovely setting with great views and very friendly and energetic staff. The main maze has nice wide paths which keeps any claustrophobia at bay. You can find clues in the maze to reveal a secret message. There are twelve clues hidden and the maze and these are found at regular enough intervals to keep the kids enthused. There is a water tap at the exit if the hedge maze which is refreshing on a warm day.
There is a native maze being constructed with native rosemary and mint which is ideal for the younger kids.
The 18 hole mini golf course has the right amount of challenge but is easy enough for the game to flow when it is busy. If the kids have any energy left they can play Frisbee golf which is set on a bit of a hill and so there are likely to be some tired kids sleeping in the car on the way home.
There is a cafe serving food including pies, cakes, Devonshire tea, drinks and ice-cream at reasonable prices. Food can be served indoors or at a variety of sunny or shaded places outside. BBQ are also available. There are puzzles on the tables which can also be purchased.
For some reasons the pamphlet refers to giant chess but it is actually giant draughts (maybe some giant chess pieces were lost down the back of a giant sofa?). A new lick of paint wouldn't go astray on the giant draughts-board. Initially I thought the prices might be a little steep but there are plenty of interesting activities and it represents good value. The entrance fee includes the hedge maze, rainbow maze, lookout tower mural, giant checkers board, mini golf and Frisbee golf. However, the option of a cheaper entrance fee which only includes the mazes would be good. It would make it more economical to combine a visit to the Healesville Sanctuary and here in one day - although you could easily make a trip and spend the day occupied at the maze.
