Avenel Maze




Avenel Maze, five minutes from the creek where Ned rescued seven-year-old Richard Shelton, is set in the hills of the magnificent Strathbogie Ranges where the Kelly Gang roamed. Designed to a theme created by the world’s foremost maze designer, Adrian Fisher, Avenel Maze is a new concept in mazes.

Entry Fee
The entry fee covers all mazes and games, including Royal Avenel, the mini golf circuit. It also covers the cost of the use of the BBQ.

Review:


The maze represents great family value with everything included in a reasonable entry price. There are no EFTPOS/credit card facilities, so make sure you have enough cash because it is a long way to the nearest ATM machine!

It includes a number of different type mazes (rock, hedge, flower, rope), nine hole mini-golf course, games like giant draughts, mini frisbee, horseshoes and free BBQ. There is a Ned Kelly theme running through everything.

You get a nicely presented sheet and pencil with questions and objects to search for in the maze. This keeps the kids interested. The Police Trackers Maze is surrounded by hedges but inside is very open and has a maze of purple and cream coloured Agapanthus flowers. This maze is nice and easy to traverse and there are no excuses for getting lost in here.

The Bushrangers Maze is a hedge maze with nice wide paths and not too difficult to navigate but does provide enough challenge. There is also a rock labyrinth - just follow the path and you will eventually get to the centre. The mazes are fine for claustrophobic people but horrible for arachnophobic people - there are spiders and webs everywhere in the mazes and if you are one of the first people in the maze in the morning you will be getting tangled in webs which go across the paths.

The golf course has a black gravel/small stone base and is fairly straightforward. There is a shaded area with tables near the BBQ. There is no cafe but cold and hot drinks are available.
