The Enchanted Maze Garden was the best day's outing that we can remember. And that was the consensus of a group of us ranging from 5 years old to 68 years old. We chose a wonderfully sunny winter's day, packed our picnic lunch, and arrived at about 11am. The numerous intriguing and absorbing mazes, the giant tube slides, the Tree... More

This is a beautiful place to visit on a sunny day . I agree with other reviewers that it isn't cheap but personally think it's worth the money as there is certainly enough to do for several hours. We have two young grandchildren aged 5 and 7 who love the tree surfing and I disagree that this is dangerous. The... More

Kids had a ball, despite the rain they went mad on the nippers tree surfing, sadly no tube riding because of the weather. We are local so Annual Passes are on the horizon, I reckon I will be back with the mini Tarzans!!

We had a fantastic day at the maze. The Tree Surfing was brilliant fun, even though I'm terrified of heights. It certainly gives the thrill factor but you do feel completely safe because you're locked on at all times. My kids aged 9 & 7 loved it and of course had no fear. It took just over 2 hours to...

So much to do, staff excellent and handled the smaller kids really well, explaining why they couldn't go on the tree walk! Older kids loved all the adventures

The staff were helpful, the gardens, pathways and vegetation well maintained. Enjoyed the light meal in the cafe. Come early, very popular, great day out for families.

I'm surprised occ health and safety passed this place. The grand tree surfing has 5 different courses, and as a novice I felt that not having an opt out at every stage is ridiculous and dangerous. If someone chooses to not go any further, everyone behind you has to go back to the beginning or finish that course. On level... More

Hi Tracey S, Thank you for your comments. Were certainly very concerned that you perceived our Tree Surfing course as dangerous and that you felt unnerved enough to write this review. Just to put yours and other readers minds at rest, our course has been designed and constructed with user safety as the highest priority. It has passed the strictest... More

We come here once or twice a year. The mazes are fun to lose the children in, there are lots of activities and lovely grounds. Over the last 2 years the children have wistfully looked at the tree surfing wondering when they would be tall enough, but this year there is a newly opened 'nippers' course, fantastic.

This is a must do school holiday activity, the tube sliding is fabulous fun for most ages, mum and dads can slide too. We loved the gardens and maze. We will be back to do the treetop walking. Try have a lolly shop which adds colour and sugar. Cafe food offering was nice, although expensive. In nice weather take a... More

I have been going to the Enchanted Maze Garden with my children since they were about 4 years old and they are now 13 years old. We go every year when down on the Peninsula. It never gets boring because they add new things all the time. It is not a cheap day out but if you take a picnic... More
